Chef's Note

Recipe by François Martel, Managing Chef of the Académie Culinaire du Québec. Adaptation MSCOMM

Why olive oil on pasta?
Let cool the pasta on a tray; sprinkle lightly with olive oil. Cold pasta will retain a firm texture without sticking together.

Do you know combawa or kaffir lime?
Found in Asian markets, the combawa is a variety of lemon that adds fresh flavours of citronella and lime.
