In Step 1, you write "Once that's cooked, place the noodles into the skillet with about 1/4 cup water and the nice of the lemon." Do you mean the rind or the juice of the lemon?

Hey there. "Once that's cooked' is referring to the garlic and tomatoes. And haha, it should say the juice of the lemon, not the nice of the lemon. But if you want, the lemon zest would make a nice addition too.
