    Title: Buttery Lemon Pasta w/Almonds & Arugula
    Categories: Pasta, Herbs, Chilies, Greens, Citrus
    Yield: 5 servings

    Salt & fresh ground pepper
    1 lb Linguine or spaghetti
    6 tb Unsalted butter
    1 c Sliced almonds
    2 Fresh rosemary sprigs
    1/4 ts Red-pepper flakes; more to
    - taste
    1/4 c Fresh squeezed lemon juice;
    - more to taste
    1 tb Fine grated lemon zest
    4 oz Baby or wild arugula; coarse
    - chopped
    Grated Parmesan; to serve

    Bring a large pot of heavily salted water to a boil. Add
    pasta and cook until it is 1 minute shy of being al
    dente, usually a minute or 2 less than the package

    instructions. Scoop out about 1½ cups pasta water, then
    drain pasta.

    While the pasta cooks, in a large skillet or Dutch oven,
    melt butter over medium heat. Cook, swirling
    occasionally, until the foam subsides, the milk solids
    turn golden-brown and the butter smells nutty and
    toasty, 3 to 4 minutes. (Watch carefully to see that it
    doesn’t burn.)

    Stir in almonds, rosemary and red-pepper flakes, and
    cook, stirring occasionally, until the nuts are toasted
    and slightly darker in color, about 1 minute.

    Add about 1 cup pasta water to the skillet and bring to
    a simmer. Add lemon juice, zest, ½ teaspoon salt and a
    large pinch of black pepper, then add drained pasta and
    toss well. Add arugula, tossing until it wilts. Simmer
    for another minute, if needed, to thicken the sauce
    until it’s thick and glossy. If the mixture seems dry,
    add more pasta water 1 tablespoon at a time.

    Taste and add more salt, red-pepper flakes and lemon
    juice, if needed. Serve topped with grated Parmesan and
    more red-pepper flakes, if you like.
