Yields: 4 Servings

1 lb. spaghetti or bucatini - get 10% off all Sogno Toscano pasta when you use our code: THEBDAUG10
2 lemons (zest from 1, juice from 2)
1-2 cloves garlic, minced (sub garlic powder)
4 tbsp. butter
1 cup baby arugula (sub spinach, kale or any fresh greens you have available)
½ cup freshly grated pecorino, parmesan or Lottie's Vegan Parmesan
Kosher salt
Freshly cracked black pepper
1 cup cashew ricotta (optional)


In a large skillet, melt butter on medium heat, until it starts to foam. Lower the heat to low, and add garlic and lemon zest, and sautee for 1-2 minutes, until garlic becomes fragrant.

Meanwhile, in a medium pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta until it is just a bit under al dente. Reserve about 1 cup of the pasta cooking water, then drain the pasta.

Add the pasta to the butter mixture along with ½ cup of the pasta cooking water, increase the heat to medium-high, and toss the pasta in the skillet until the sauce glazes the pasta nicely.

Add the grated cheese, lemon juice, and arugula and toss or stir rapidly until the sauce thickens and all ingredients are well combined. Serve immediately for best results.

Top each serving with a dollop of cashew ricotta, cracked black pepper, and some extra grated cheese.
