Lemon Butter Sauce for Pasta Recipe

Two weeks ago, I shared with you the kids’ adapted recipe for Lemon Parmesan Chicken.  At that time I promised you the recipe for the accompanying pasta with lemon butter sauce.  Well, here it is!!


1/2 cube unsalted butter

2-3 cloves garlic, grated

1 small shallot, grated

1-2 lemons

2 Tbsp. flour

16 oz. chicken broth

1 tsp. lemon-herb seasoning


In a 2 qt. or larger saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat.  Add the garlic and shallot, zest of the lemons and 2 Tbsp, flour.  Stir with a wire whisk and cook just until thickened.

Add chicken broth, lemon-herb seasoning and lemon juice.  Continue cooking for about 5 minutes, until flavors are well-blended.

Serve over your favorite cooked pasta.
