Lemon Linguine

This is a really fresh tasting change for linguine. I think it would also be good over angel hair. I served this with Chicken Piccata.

1 8 oz pkg linguine
1/4 cup finely minced shallots (or onions)
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1 Tbsp butter, melted
1 8 oz carton sour cream (I used light sour cream and it was just great)
4 Tbsp freshly grated Parmesan, divided
1 Tbsp milk
1 3/4 tsp lemon-pepper seasoning
1/4 tsp salt
1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice (1/2 medium lemon)
1 whole lemon, zested
2 Tbsp freshly chopped parsley (flat leaf)
2 Tbsp freshly chopped chives

Cook linguine according to package directions. Drain & keep warm.

In a skilled cook shallots & garlic in butter until tender. Stir in sour cream, half Parmesan, milk, lemon-pepper, salt, lemon juice and lemon zest. Cook 1-2 minutes. Remove from heat and pour over linguine. Toss and add parsley, chives and remaining Parmesan. This recipe comes mostly courtesy of Paula Deen
