Lemon Pasta with Herbs and Cracked Pepper
No specific cheating here, just a sauce that you can whiz together in moments and toss into any kind of pasta.
I like it hot with linguine or tossed into cooked macaroni, then cooled and served as a salad.

This recipe is from Delia's Vegetarian Collection. Serves 4
Begin by heating four pasta bowls ready for serving.
Then, in a large saucepan, heat up 8 pints (4.7 litres) water with 1 level tablespoon sea salt and bring it up to a good, fierce boil. Add the pasta to the boiling water and stir once, then let it boil briskly for 10 minutes.
All that happens now is that while the pasta is cooking, the rest of the ingredients are piled into a processor with a teaspoon of salt, then one big whiz till the herbs are chopped and that’s it. Now drain the pasta and return it quickly to the saucepan with the sauce and toss the two together. You can also watch how to cook perfect pasta in our Cookery School Video on this page.
Serve in the warm bowls with a little extra zest sprinkled over each one.
