It takes a deft hand to make a big bowl of pasta feel light. But Chef Stephanie Fees of Scratch Pasta does just that with her Lemon Basil Gemelli, made with inspired flavors and Italian technique. She infuses the twirly noodles with lemon rind and basil, bringing a citrusy, herbaceous aroma in every bite. It’s comforting yet summery, no matter what season you’re in. Serve cold in pasta salad with veggies and crumbles of Westfield Farm Capri, or pick up those basil flavors by tossing with pesto.

“This pasta is perfect on its own but is easy to take to the next level with some Il Forteto Basil Pesto and shrimp. The noodles have a great bite when served slightly al dente.”

  • Gemelli is a twisted pasta shape. The name derives from the Italian for twins, as each noodle looks like two pasta strands formed into a spiral.
  • The use of lemon rind rather than juice gives these noodles a bright lemon flavor without any tartness.
  • Turmeric provides a sunny yellow tint, while the basil brings both herby notes and specks of green.
  • Scratch uses semolina flour to craft their pastas, which has a high gluten content that allows the noodles to keep their shape when cooked.
  • Chef Stephanie Fees started Scratch Pasta in 2017 in her hometown of Lynchburg, Virginia.
  • Stephanie previously worked as a chef in New York City and West Virginia, returning home to work at a wedding venue and taking time to attend pasta school in Chiavari, Italy.
  • She built on that experience to found Scratch Pasta, where she makes high-quality pasta in small batches using local ingredients.
  • Scratch Pastas are made using sold brass dies, which gives each shape a rustic texture that allows sauces to cling to the noodles.
  • Their flavored pastas stand out, from briny squid ink to bright lemon and basil to spicy garlic and cayenne.
