Creamy spaghetti: it’s the ultimate comfort food, throughout the seasons. Mascarpone gives this dish a lighter feel, and meyer lemons brighten, so you can still slurp your noodles in warm weather.

Mascarpone is a soft, scoopable, sweet cheese. Not sugar sweet, but mild and milky with just the tiniest bit of tang. The Meyer lemon has that same quality: sweeter than a regular lemon but still tart. They make a great sauce together, lighter than a typical cream sauce but still silky and rich.
