Creamy Pasta with Lemon-Pepper Chicken
We gave weeknight pasta a citrusy makeover.
Why This Recipe Works
The fresh lemon juice and zest we used in our Creamy Pasta with Lemon-Pepper Chicken tasted brighter than any packaged lemon-pepper seasoning ever would. When selecting lemons, we found that round ones were slightly juicier than elliptical ones, and bigger lemons yielded more juice than smaller ones. Tasters preferred whole whole-milk ricotta cheese, but part-skim worked almost as well.
