[side dish] Linguine with Mascarpone Cheese

    Ingredients – serves 2
  • 4 Oz wholegrain linguine
  • abt 2 tbsp Mascarpone cheese / or use fat free/low fat cream cheese  (make your own Mascarpone at home)
  • Zest and juice of 1 lemon (or as per taste)
  • 1/4 cup cubed carrots
  • 1/4 cup frozen peas
  • salt to taste
  • cilantro/parsley to garnish


I usually try to avoid boiling vegetables unless its for soups. So while boiling the water for pasta, I used the same vessel to steam my carrots. I placed a steamer basket on top of the boiling water and steamed my carrots for few minutes. I tossed in the frozen peas in the last few minutes.

Cook the wholegrain linguine according to package instructions.

While the pasta cooks, in a large bowl, add 2 tbsp cheese and the lemon zest along with the juice.

We want to be able to create a cheese sauce without adding fat. Usually adding some olive oil will make this more richer and delicious. But instead of the oil, I add about one tablespoon of the hot pasta water and create a sauce out of the same. Whisk them well.

Add the cooked linguine along with the steamed vegetables.

Toss it well. You can add more cheese/lemon juice/pasta water/salt as per taste.

Garnish with the herb of your choice and serve. Simple, colorful, quick and needless to say – appetizing.
