An easy recipe that can be whipped up in about 15 minutes from minimal ingredients for maximum style.

Ingredients[edit]

  • Whole lemon

Procedure[edit]

  1. Boil a kettle and put the pasta on.
  2. Melt the cheese (do not overheat) and stir in a little tomato puree to turn it salmon pink.
  3. Add a slug of vodka to the melted cheese.
