How can I describe this creamy lemon pasta sauce to you? It is creamy, cheesy, yet refreshing from the fresh lemon juice and zest. All these simple ingredients work together so well to create such a delicious bite of food. You can’t help but go back for more and before you know it; your plate is done!

This creamy lemon pasta is a meal that you can get on the table in 15 minutes! Yes! You heard that right. You can have a fantastic meal for everyone to enjoy that fast. This dish pairs beautifully with chicken or shrimp as well if you would like to add that in but is is perfect on its own too. I have paired the sauce before with gnocchi, ravioli, spaghetti, and penne. Work with whatever you have available to you!
