Thin capellini pasta with garlic toasted breadcrumbs, bottarga roe and super fragrant lemon zest – is all you can desire of a mouth watering pasta ready in mere 10 minutes.

As you know capellini pasta or angel hair cook in a blink of an eye or while you’re prepping the table. Light but super flavorful sauce is enriched with grated bottarga (grey mullet or tuna fish roe). Toasted breadcrumbs add texture and aroma, while lemon zest balances all these incredible flavors together.

If you’re like me, not much into dish-washing lately, skip two pans and simple wipe the pan with a paper towel once you brown the breadcrumbs.
