One-Pan Spicy Lemon Pasta Recipe Went Viral for Taste & Anti-inflammatory Ingredients by Ann Marie Patitucci

We’ve all seen TikTok recipes go viral, right? Well, I honestly don’t understand why some are so popular. Others look good, but I don’t end up making them. This spicy lemon pasta recipe is different, my friends.

This lemon pasta recipe has it all. It’s delicious, made in one pan and has some of the best anti-inflammatory ingredients, such as lemon, olive oil, garlic and chili pepper flakes. What’s not to love?

Many thanks to Emily Mariko who shared her tasty pasta recipe on TikTok and to Mamma Culinaria, an Italian cook living in Germany, who modified it. Now you can join in on the deliciously viral recipe fun, too.

Here's how to make it:

  1. In a medium pot, boil 3 cups of salted water over high heat.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large sauté pan, bring the olive oil, butter, chili flakes, garlic and salt to a simmer over medium heat. Once simmering, add the uncooked pasta and a few ladles of the hot, salted water at a time.
