Angel Hair Pasta with Olive Oil and Lemon
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
zest and juice of one-half lemon
½ teaspoon nutmeg
salt to taste
freshly ground black pepper to taste
12 ounces angel hair pasta
1/8 cup Parmesan cheese
At Home Mix all ingredients except pasta and cheese. Pack in a small Lexan container (ideal because oil won’t sweat through the plastic). Break pasta strands in half and pack in zipper-lock bag for easy transport.
In Camp Boil pasta until al dente, about 5 minutes. Strain liquid from pot; stir in the oil-lemon mixture and half the Parmesan cheese. Put in bowls and sprinkle with remaining cheese. Serves two hungry hikers.
