How to Make Fresh Grated Pasta


  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • Salt
  • 7 slices of sandwich bread, crusts removed
  • 1/2 cup flat-leaf parsley leaves
  • 6 ounces red radishes, very thinly sliced on a mandoline

How to make this recipe

  1. In a small bowl, blend the softened butter with the lemon zest and lemon juice and season with salt.

  2. Spread the bread slices with the lemon butter. Using a 1 1/2-inch round biscuit cutter, cut 16 rounds from 4 slices. Cut the remaining slices into 2 1/2-by-1-inch rectangles. Top with the parsley leaves and radish slices. Serve at once, or cover the sandwiches with plastic wrap and let stand at room temperature for up to 2 hours.
