You will need:
Pasta for 4 persons
2 egg yolks
a little lemon zest
juice of 1/2 lemon
1 handful of fresh tarragon
Salt and pepper
20 g butter
100 g Jarlsberg® cheese
Scampi or crayfish tails to serve - quantity of your taste and choice
Makes 4 portions.
To make the creamy pasta
Cook the pasta according to the instructions on the pack. Whisk together 1 egg, 2 egg yolks, and the zested peel and juice of ½ lemon. Roughly chop the tarragon and stir it into the egg mixture.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
When the pasta has cooked, strain off the water. Add the butter to the pasta pan and allow to melt into the pasta. Then add the egg and herb mixture and stir carefully. Grate the Jarlsberg® cheese over the hot pasta, turning it carefully so that the cheese is evenly distributed.
Serve with fresh-fried scampi or crayfish tails.
