Homemade Lemon Pasta with Chive Oil

Silken lemon-zested homemade pasta noodles in a light flavorful vegetable broth, accented with a simple herb oil, this lemon pasta with chive oil is about as elegant as a pretty gal in a fine lacy dress or a handsome man in a tuxedo!

Homemade pasta is not a huge time consuming a project—it takes me about an hour to prepare the noodles from dough to finished dish. I use the food processor (Affiliate link) to mix and knead the dough and a hand crank pasta machine to cut the noodles. While the dough is resting, heat the broth, make the chive oil and set the water to boil.

Homemade pasta is done in three minutes in boiling water, ready to slip into the broth for delicious soup!

The chive oil is the perfect accent for simple sexy lemon pasta in broth. Besides a soup garnish, the herbal oil makes a simple dressing for salad greens.

I have an inexpensive hand-cranked stainless steel pasta machine (Affiliate) that I put to use when I want to flatter my guests with elegant homemade pasta. One time I served homemade pasta to guests just home from three weeks in Italy. They said they ate fabulous meals there but they had to come home to eat the best, by a little lady in Park City, me. Make your own pasta and you’ll be hearing such compliments too!
