Pasta and lemon are a delicious culinary duo: lemon’s acidity perfectly and simply brightens up hearty pasta. This recipe uses sunny lemon flavor in three ways: with juice, zest and fresh, lemon-infused linguine. We’re tossing the linguine with sautéed chard and caramelized onion in a creamy sauce made with Greek yogurt and a little butter. The result is a gourmet, vibrant meal, topped off with walnuts and shaved Parmesan cheese.
