A speedy 20-minute linguine recipe is made with zesty lemons, fresh parsley, plenty of cheese and, if you like a kick, you can add a teaspoon of red chilli too.


  • 400g linguine
  • 80g fresh parsley, roughly chopped
  • Zest and juice of 4 unwaxed lemons
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 100g Grana Padano, grated, plus extra for serving
  • 75ml extra-virgin olive oil


  1. Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil, add the pasta and cook for 10-12 minutes, until al dente.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, mix the parsley with the lemon zest and juice, garlic, cheese and olive oil. Season well with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  3. When the pasta is cooked, drain well and add to the sauce. Toss to combine and serve with Grana Padano for sprinkling.
