Recipe: Pasta Al Limone

Recipe: Pasta Al Limone - Whimsy & Row

If you think we launched a Home Collection, just so we could get together, eat pasta and take pictures, you’re not totally wrong. (LOL!)

The truth is — it was our our Junior Designer & Production Coordinator Natalia's idea to use our old linen scraps to make table linens. We had several yards leftover from our Valentina Archive and the whole team was on board with it.

We decided on making napkins, table runners + aprons.  (Click on any photo to shop!) Carlos did the production right here for us in DTLA — Read more about his FACTORY, B’atz’ Ox on our Factory Page

And of course in true Whimsy fashion, they’re all made to mix + match. When it came time to shoot, we needed to have food props, and if we're going to make the food, might as well make something yummy right?  

So obviously we went with PASTA!  And this one tastes just as good as it looks... No pasta was wasted at this shoot, that's for sure! We hope you love!

Recipe pulled from Wellness by Kay — 


1 lb pasta (if you really want to treat yourself, use fresh pasta!)

3/4 cup pasta water
4 cloves garlic

      Start by boiling your pasta water, add a pinch of salt, and your pasta.  Cook according to the box and as you would any other pasta.  Make sure to keep your pasta water, you will need it for the sauce.
      While the pasta is cooking, add the butter to a large pan over low to medium heat and melt.  Add the garlic and sauté for a few minutes until soft and fragrant.
      Once done cooking, add the pasta to the pan with the butter and garlic.  Add the parmesan cheese (little by little if needed), lemon juice, and pasta water.  Toss to combine.  Add salt and pepper to taste.
      Serve with an extra squeeze of lemon, lots of lemon zest, parmesan cheese, and fresh parsley.  Enjoy!
