Bright and Sunny Lemon Linguine

This simple dish was inspired by Mario Batali's Bavette Cacio Pepe. The list of ingredients may make it sound like a boring side, but try a bite and you'll want to turn it into a meal.

I go for a slightly healthier take on Batali's dish replacing some butter for olive oil and adding some lemon zest for a little bit of sunshine.

This goes nicely with some Ratatouille.
