      To me, this is perfect pasta. It is simple but has an abundance of flavors. Serving with grated cheese is a must. Thanks for the lovely recipe.

      I just had this for dinner. I love the lemon juice added to this dish; I'm told that the olive oil and garlic are the only essential traditional parts, but I think the lemon makes a big difference. I don't add oil to my pasta cooking water, but that's a personal preference. I sometimes use this general technique to make pasta with vegetables. You can either cook broccoli along with the pasta, add sliced zucchini when you saute the garlic, or first cook a green such as dandelion greens or spinach, chop it fine, and add it along with the pepper and lemon.
