1/2teaspoon black pepper
Cook pasta according to package directions.
In a medium-sized saucepan over medium-high heat melt butter, and add heavy cream. When the mixture begins to bubble stir in Parmesan cheese, and stir until well blended, and the cheese has melted. Add in lemon juice and lemon zest and stir.
Season with black pepper and salt to taste. In a bowl add cooked pasta and pour sauce over cooked pasta, mix well. You may wish to garnish your pasta dish with some additional Parmesan cheese, parsley, or even a couple of capers. This dish does not re-heat well, so plan on enjoying this dish in one setting. I love to serve this up with some fried chicken cutlets and a glass of white wine.
