  1. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Cook pasta to al dente. Reserve pasta water when draining pasta.
  2. While pasta is cooking, melt butter over medium heat in a large skillet. Lower heat to low, add lemon zest and garlic, and cook about 1 to 2 minutes.
  3. Add pasta to butter mixture, along with about 1/2 cup reserved pasta water. Increase heat to medium-high heat, and toss pasta to emulsify the sauce and coat the pasta.
  4. Add grated cheese and toss to thicken sauce. In necessary, add more pasta water to keep the sauce creamy. Add lemon juice to taste, starting with 1 tablespoon. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Serve immediately, with a sprinkling of additional grated lemon zest and cheese.
