    Yay! Yipee! Meyer lemons are back in season and now I have the perfect Meyer Lemon Pasta recipe for them. I am so excited. I just went online, Googled ‘purchase Meyer lemons’ and there they were, ready to deliver direct from growers. I should have them in a few days ready to use in your wonderful recipe.

    "Sphaghetti with Meyer Lemon." That's priceless.

    Can’t wait to serve recipe to my family especially since everyone in my family are all big Meyer lemon fans and pasta fans.

    Meyer Lemons are like love. Sometimes hard to find, but well worth the wait.

    Thank you again for sharing this recipe.

    Oh yes. I will be making this very soon! Looks perfect.

    And if your really taking votes, id love to hear the kale salad recipe. We are getting a lot of kale from our CSA lately, and I'm up to my neck in kale chips and soups.

    Yay! I love having a variety of ways to serve pasta (easily the favorite dish around here). I'm going to use whole wheat spaghetti- I think the lemon, olive oil and pepper can stand up to it.

    And come to think of it, this would make a terrific dressing for chickpeas, which I love to throw in for protein. Thanks Debbie!

    Ok- coming back to report that chickpeas with this sauce were so ridiculously delicious, I may have found my new go-to snack.

    Todd, thanks for your considerable enthusiasm!

    Jesse, I've noted your vote. Yes, I was serious.

    And WordyD, do you mean you left out the pasta & just tossed the sauce with chickpeas? I have to try that! I've got another recipe on the site that's pasta w/broccoli & chickpeas, in a lemony sauce–the flavors definitely go together well.

    Fab suggestion! I have some meyer lemons on my counter that were originally bound for cocktails and curds, but I might have to sacrifice a few to the pasta bowl.

    This is my son's fav, go-to, much requested dinner (along with a side salad). He'd eat it every week, no worries, and loves it for lunch too.

    Pasta is a staple in my house and this light lemony sauce sounds delicious! Thanks for the recipe.

    I think I just caught myself drooling! I will be giving this a try very soon. Also, the pizza recipe should be next – that's my opinion!! 🙂

    Yep, my mouth is watering. Thanks for sharing this awesome recipe!

    I have never had Meyer lemon! Clearly I need to!

    Made this tonight. Yummy, but I must admit it pales in comparison to your pecorino cheese/lemon and mint dish that I tested for the upcoming book.

  13. Jess

    Mmm! Looks delish! Thanks for posting!!

    Wow, who knew a simple lemony pasta dish could be such a hit? Note to self: more lemony pasta.

    GFG, I totally forgot about that recipe! Now I need to buy mint.

    This looks so bright and refreshing! A welcome dinner after a long month of heavy food. I can't wait to try it.

    This sounds lovely and I've got a Meyer tree in the yard with fruit ready to pick at the moment. Don't hate me- in July I'll be freezing my tush off.

    Don't forget that recipe. It is one of my favorites. Go get ye some mint. I'm making sure to grow it again this year just for that dish. Oh, that dish and the mojitos.

    Thanks for this! My 5.5 y-o loves browsing recipes and this caught her attention right away, so we tried it tonight. Didn't have enough parmesan, but did have plenty of pecorino, also used wholewheat pasta. Came out a hit, only one who hasn't had any yet is the baby, but only because he fell asleep early, will have to make this again later in the week and try him on it. Big sister is certainly clamouring for more!

    My 5.5 year-old loves browsing recipes and she thought this sounded yummy so we gave it a whirl tonight. Didn't actually have enough parmesan in stock so we substituted pecorino, also used wholewheat pasta. Came out so good! Will have to make it again later in the week with parmesan and see how that is. My daughter is so excited to be able to make something so simple and friendly to kid cooks 🙂

  20. debbie koenig

    How funny, Princess–I made it last night with pecorino, too! It came out a little saltier/tangier than with parm, but very, very similar.

    Finally made this tonight, Debbie, and is was amazing. My husband and I both devoured it. Wish Meyers had a longer season. Oh, and I steamed some broccoli to go with it and it would have been excellent just tossed right in with the pasta. Thanks!
