SPAGETTI WITH CREAMY MINT LEMON SAUCE
I once ate this Pasta dish in Famous „Mädchenitaliener“ in Berlin Mitte and just could`t get it out of my mind. The combination of mint and pasta sounded a bit strange at first but its just super delicious in combination with lemon, garlic and shrimp. And its so fast to make, literally just takes you the time that it takes to cook the pasta but still is a bit different than you usual fast pasta.
