Creamy Lemon Pappardelle

  • Prep Time 5 minutes
  • Cook Time 10 minutes
  • Estimated Cost $11

I actually first posted about a pasta recipe with a creamy, eggy lemon sauce the first week this blog was live, back in 2009. The recipe was inspired by one by Dave Lieberman, whose boy-next-door good looks, and proclivity for challah bread pudding and stuffed cabbage caught my attention when he was briefly on Food Network, hosting his fantastic show, which focused on fresh, affordable, simple foods, Good Deal with Dave Lieberman

When the San Francisco-based pasta company, Three Bridges sent me some fresh pappardelle (a wide, tender noodle), I knew I had to break it out again. 

The key to getting really rich, lemony flavor is a one-two punch of both lemon juice and lemon zest.

Though there is a little bit of technique involved, the dish is actually pretty simple. The main work is in whisking the sauce, which is cooked over boiling water, so the eggs cook gently with the half-and-half and lemon without scrambling.

If you have a double boiler, this is a great time to use it, but if, like me, you don't, just make your own with a bowl and a pot.

All that whisking really pays off though, because the sauce is utterly decadent. I top the sauced pasta with more lemon zest, plus parsley and coarsely chopped, lightly toasted almonds for crunch.

Serve this with a crisp green salad and Prosecco or another crisp white wine


Oooooh yeeeaaaahhh. 


  • 3 egg yolks $1.50 for 6 eggs
  • 2/3 cup half-and-half $1.50 for a half-pint
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced Pantry
  • zest and juice of 1 lemon (reserve a little zest for garnish) $1
  • salt and pepper to taste Pantry
  • 8 ounces pappardelle, fresh or dried (if you can't find pappardelle, use fettucine, linguine, or any other wide, long-strand pasta) $3
  • 1/8 cup chopped, toasted almonds $3 (buy in the bulk section for the best price)
  • a handful of fresh parsley, chopped finely $1 for a bunch

Recipe Serves 2


  1. Combine the egg yolks, half-and-half, garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice, and salt and pepper to taste in a heatproof bowl (or in the top of a double boiler).
  2. Place over a pot of boiling water (check out the photo in the introduction to get a sense of how this should look--make sure the bowl is large enough to sit on top of the pot without falling in). 
  3. Whisk until the mixture thickens into a pale yellow, smooth sauce (depending on the size of your bowl, this could take anywhere from 3 to 7 minutes).
  4. Remove the sauce from heat and set aside.
  5. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the pappardelle according to directions. 
  6. As soon as the pappardelle is cooked, toss it with the sauce.
  7. Use tongs or forks to divide the pasta into bowls and top each one with a sprinkling of almonds, parsley, and more black pepper if desired.

In performing this easy money spell, you only need one small green candle. Do not perform the ritual with any other candles. If you cannot get one, kindly contact me and get the results that you desire.
You then need to follow these steps:
1. Use a sharp object to write these words on the candle:
“LILUM DIKSUR MUN TIMNAL”. Remember that there should be no mistakes when performing the ritual. Make sure that you do not write anything different from this.
1. Put the candle on a surface within the altar.
2. Allow the candle to burn for some time as you chant the words used in making the money spell. You may contact me for continuous update of the right words to chant.

No one could have ever made me believe that the letter I’m about to write would actually one day be written. I was the world’s biggest skeptic. I never believed in magic spells or anything like that, but I was told by a reliable source (a very close co-worker) that Prof. Sibanda is a very dedicated, gifted, and talented person, and after much “cajoling,” she (my co-worker) got me to visit him.

It was one of the best things I have ever done. My love life was in shambles; I had been through two divorces and was on the brink of a third. I just couldn’t face another divorce, and I wanted to try harder to make our relationship work, but my husband didn’t seem to care. So, with nothing but my pride to lose, I checked it out. I was flabbergasted. Prof. Sibanda is for REAL though his services fare are quite pricely but his guaranteed. He did whatever magic he does, and lo and behold – no more than TWO DAYS later, I had my husband back! It was like a miracle! He suddenly wanted to go to marriage counseling, and we’re doing very, very well, on the road to recovery! Love and Many Blessings Back to You! Contact Prof. . You can also contact him directly on his website or whatsapp him +27739056572 website:
