4-Ingredient Creamy Lemony Pasta

Serves 4

Hands-on time: 12 minutes

Hands-off time: 15 minutes


½ packet (250g) spaghetti

1 tbsp salt, optional

1 large lemon, juice and zest

1 cup (115g) Flora Plant BUTTER™

1 cup finely grated parmesan cheese, or firm cheese of choice

½ tsp pepper, optional

Serving Suggestions:

Parsley, finely chopped


1. Place a medium-sized pot over medium-high heat. Add 2½ cups boiling water and 1 tablespoon of salt to the pot. Allow the pasta to cook until al dente, about 7-8 minutes.

2. When al dente, set ½ cup of pasta water aside and strain away the rest.

3. Turn the heat down to medium-low. Add the strained pasta, the zest and juice from the lemon, Flora Plant BUTTER™ and the reserved pasta water to the pot. Mix until a thickened sauce forms. *Chef’s Tip: Flora Plant BUTTER™ is an excellent source of plant-based oils!

4. Once the sauce has thickened slightly, add ½ cup of parmesan cheese and pepper to the pot and stir until just combined. *Chef’s Tip: Any quick-cooking protein and vegetables can be added here.

5. Serve the pasta garnished with the remaining parmesan cheese and chopped parsley, and ENJOY!
