I had to rescue my lemon balm from snails and slugs and now it got over this attack. I don’t know why, but my neighbour’s lemony balm looks much better.
Lemony balm is an ingredient of Germany’s famous abbey medicine. The nun Maria Clementine Martin invented the remedy, an alcoholic extract from herbs and medical plants. I used it for
Lemony pasta with lemon balm
I halved this recipe and used whole-meal pasta. Delicious with a very lemony taste!

1. Prepare pasta according to package instructions.
2. Heat oil in a pan. Sauté spring onions and garlic until soft, add lemon juice and cook until the juice is boiled down. Remove from heat. Mix with yogurt, grated peel and herbs. Season to taste with salt, pepper and a pinch of sugar.
3. Drain pasta and mix immediately with the yoghurt sauce. Decorate with herbs if desired.

An interesting recipe! I bet they taste delicious…
It sounds very good. I haven’t cooked with lemon balm, but I’ve tasted it. I think it sounds great with garlic and basil. Great combination.
mhhh lecker, mach ich heute abend nach.
I have tons of lemon balm (it’s taking over my garden, like the mint) and never know what to do with it, other than tea. This looks great. It would be wonderful with fish!
They seem to be terrible in Northern Germany so please don’t send them to the south… ;-)
But your recipe sounds good, that’s a real good idea to combine lemon balm with pasta!
