  • 4 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 pinch lemon zest

  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 250 grams sliced chicken

  3. Crack your eggs in the middle and scramble them with your fingers. Now, slowly incorporate the flour and make a dough.
  4. Wrap it in plastic wrap and let your dough rest for 2 hours. After that, flour your rolling surface and your rolling handle. Roll your pasta dough into a thin pasta sheet and cut ribbons. Alternatively, you can use a pasta machine. You can use store-bought tagliatelle or fettuccine if you do not want to make fresh pasta.
  5. To a heavy-bottom pot add water and let it come to a roaring boil. Add plenty of salt and drop your pasta. If you are cooking fresh pasta it would take exactly eight minutes to cook and come out al-dente. For store-bought ones use the package instructions.
