Perfect Nigella’s Lemon linguine

Here are some tips to get Nigella’s recipe right.

  • Use chestnut mushrooms, they have a more earthy flavour and remain firmer during cooking.
  • Use extra virgin olive oil in this recipe. As there are so few ingredients you will get the benefit from the flavour of extra virgin.
  • Remove the leaves from your thyme by running your fingers up the stalks in the opposite direct to the leaves.
  • Use a really good sea salt to season your linguine, we recommend Maldon salt.
