juice of 1 lemon

1 clove garlic, finely minced

1/3 c grated parmesan cheese

Cook pasta in salted water. In a sauté pan over low heat, melt the butter with the garlic and lemon zest. When pasta is almost done, reserve a 1/4 cup of the pasta water and transfer the noodles to the sauté pan. Add the cheese and half of the lemon juice.
