Indeed, what kind of pasta do you consider to be summer?

In my book, it should be light, bright, delightful, herbaceous, and obviously…hmmm…summery.

Eggplant, tomatoes, zucchini, green peas, lemons, and herbs are my favorite savory ingredients to go with summer pasta. Also, you might have noticed I am a huge fan of fruity pasta. So far I’ve got some lovely recipes.

Blackberry Lavender Pasta.

Peach Raspberry Pasta.

Or there’s my recent creation – Strawberry Basil Ricotta Pasta.

Secret Ingredient

Lemon is a great addition to any pasta, but it works remarkably well in summer versions. I believe many of you have tried lemon pasta, don’t you? But I think there’s a great chance you haven’t tried this Lemon Poppy Seed Pasta yet.

Light and lemony sauce? Yes, please.

But now grab a chair because I’m going to announce that “very special twist”. There’s limoncello in here! How does it sound now? Much better, eh?

It might sound like a bit odd ingredient for pasta, but I thought why not. We incorporate wine and sometimes some other kinds of alcohol so there’s nothing wrong with adding a little boozy kick.

And you know what?

I didn’t regret about adding limoncello!

It makes this Lemon Poppy Seed Pasta even better (I may say Lemoncello makes many things better). It doesn’t add a strong alcohol aftertaste, but it introduces that little lovely bitter flavor what works amazingly with fresh lemon juice balancing its tartness. It’s neither overly tart nor bitter nor sweet. Just a little of this, and a little of that.

Perfect summer pasta.

Yes. My friends, these good things are all about this luscious Lemon Poppy Seed Pasta.

    Hahaha! I totally agree with you, Ben. Limoncello makes everything better. I’ve used it in baked goods and sauces a couple of times, but that’s usually for recipes on the sweeter side. I’ve never used it in a savory dish. I love how you push the traditional boundaries, and I’m thinking this lemony pasta needs to show up in my house soon! I love a good pasta dish!
