Tips and variations to make Lemon pasta Sauce you’re family favorite:
If you prefer a thicker sauce, try mixing 1 tsp of cornstarch with 2 tsp of water. Add to the sauce. you can go from there and add more.
Looking for more variety? I guess the sauce will be really delicious with caramelized onions. Just add 1 cup of onions to the garlic and fry for around 5 minutes.
Before vegan days, my favorite always was a lemon butter sauce and you can do this easily. Instead of cashew milk add coconut cream which leads to a more rich and buttery texture. Also you can add capers to make a lemon caper butter sauce.
Excited for summer? Who isn’t! Add 2 tsp lemon zest for a more tangy flavor and you have the most amazing summer dinner ideas. This way you have to check out how to peel a lemon.
