  • Summary

    This recipe is a good way to showcase any fresh chives you may have. In the spirit of buttered noodles with chives — or stir-fried lo mein with Chinese chives — this recipe uses the delicate alliums as an ingredient instead of a garnish. Their gentle onion flavor adds freshness to lemon-cream sauce, which is not unlike a delicate sour cream and onion dip. You can use crème fraîche for more tang, heavy cream for an Alfredo vibe, or ricotta for a hint of sweetness. To use another spring allium like ramps, leeks or a combination, thinly slice and simmer in heavy cream (not crème fraîche or ricotta) to soften before adding the other ingredients.

    Ingredients

    • Kosher salt and black pepper
    • 1 pound long noodles, like linguine or spaghetti
    • 3/4 cup crème fraîche, heavy cream or ricotta
    • 3/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan (1 3/4 ounces), plus more for serving
    • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon zest plus 3 tablespoons lemon juice (from 1 to 2 lemons)
    • 1/4 to 1 1/2 ounces chives, cut into 1-inch pieces
