Default Tagliatelle with Lemon

OK, OK, I'll admit it, I pinched and rewrote this one from the Chef at WorldWideRecipes. So, Thanks, Chef!

I adapted it for us dieters (basically got the fat % down to about 1/10 of what it was, and it's really a very nice pasta alternative you can serve to guests, too.

For 4 persons
takes about 20 min to make

1 Tbs (15 ml) butter or oil
The grated peel and juice of 1 lemon
2 Tbs (30 ml) chopped fresh herbs such as parsley, sage,
chives, thyme, or tarragon
2/3 cup (160 ml) 10% fat light cream, or cottage cheese (processed so as to be of creamy consistency), or light sour cream
Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
1 lb (450 g) (egg) noodles, cooked according to package
Freshly grated Parmesan cheese for garnish

Combine the butter, lemon peel, herbs, cream, salt, and pepper in a saucepan large enough to hold the cooked noodles and bring to a boil over moderate heat. Remove from the heat and stir in the lemon juice.
Toss the cooked noodles in the sauce and serve immediately sprinkled with Parmesan cheese. Serves 4 to 6.

I think this goes very nicely with grilled chicken (breasts)
