I had a similar dish recently at a German restaurant in Dresden. This is my version of that dish. It's creamy with a great light lemon flavor and is excellent topped with grilled salmon.
"we added diced sauteed chicken breast and mushrooms, and left out the zest. It wasn't very lemony due to the zest not being added, but it was still absolutely delicious and we'd make it the same way again next time. a simple creamy penne dish that tasted great.
I advise you eat as much as you can the first night though it doesn't make good left overs, the sauce turns into an oil when you heat it up again and loses it's cream."

Gmango 1 month agoTurned out a bit oily to my taste. Will leave out the butter next time, Maybe replace with EVOO
patyy 1 month agoMy family loved it and they usually don't like new things. I used half and half and worked okay. It was hard to tell if I had reduced it enough. We thought it was even better the next day. Had more of the lemony taste.
TeejMa 1 month agoVery good recipe I've cooked for years. I think it's even better reheated.
Gmango 1 month agoWe enjoyed it. Ibadded more lemon juice like someone suggested, I felt it was too much. Will try unaltered version next time.

gatun 5 months agoVery easy to make, although I really wasn't sure when the sauce had reduced enough. My family members loved it. I added cooked chicken breast cut into small pieces. This would be fantastic with some fresh vegetables, like artichokes or mushrooms, added in.

keri_enfield 6 months agoSautéed mushrooms before adding rest of ingredients. Also used chicken broth.
Rocozz 10 months agoI like lemon, this was not very lemony, more like a butter sauce. Might be better on spaetzle.
stevemur 10 months agoHanan@home, you've done it again with a phenomenal, simple recipe. I served this with lemon-lime grilled chicken. Sauteed mushrooms in the large saute pan beforehand, deglazed with stock (I substituted Chicken stock, as my wife doesn't eat red meat), then added the cream, butter, etc. and proceeded from there. Paired with haricot verts. Superb accompaniment to a springtime meal.

Skeeter77 1 year agoVery tasty and super easy comfort food. I used our own chicken stock in place of the beef broth. The dish made an excellent side for Brined Roast Chicken.
