Instantly transform simple buttered pasta into a bright, complex dish on even the laziest of weeknights. Do your best to keep the pieces of preserved lemon super small; we want those little bits to melt into the sauce and be nearly undetectable visually. Adding a touch of the salty brine from the jar will take the deep preserved lemon flavor even further. This pantry staple is plenty salty, so go easy on the salt in your pasta water and adjust the seasoning to taste right before serving. You can follow our preserved lemon recipe to make your own at home, but store-bought works too.
