We had a dish like this in Florence, Italy, a couple of years ago - tiny meatballs with lemon zest and lemony pasta sauce. It was really good. I'm going to have to try this.

this recipe was just for the pasta, the meatballs were a suggestion to Alix for her dinner. But tiny lemony meatballs does sound good.

I understand. Just wanted to chime in that having meatballs with the lemon pasta was a good suggestion.

This sounds really good and a great way to use the last of the preserved lemons I have, maybe with some greek black olives. Thanks, kadesma!

This recipe looks delicious, Kadesma. I haven't logged on here for ages and ages, and when I saw your recipe, I knew it would be good.
What I have in the kitchen tonight is some (thin) Italian Sausage, and I think some jarred sun-dried tomato. I also have Andrea frozen ravioli. I was thinking of making some sort of sauce to go with this, and stumbled on your recipe.

Thumbs up Kadesma: Homemade Lemon Fettuccini Sounds Fab

This sounds right up my alley ... I love it, as it is so simple, fragrant of citrus and basil and simple ... I do not eat too much meat, and I have had fish or octopus every day since my arrival --- so this is just perfect.

This is a well known dish in the Amalfi Coast region of Napoli, Campagna and Sicilia where lemons are widely grown ...

Off to Farmerīs Fruit Market for lemons and basil and need to re-check to see if I am stocked with other ingredients. Need semolina and pasta flours too ...

Thanks for posting.

Have a nice summer.
Margi.
