Lemon Garlic Spaghetti

Holy Smokes y'all, this one is SO.GOOD!! Serious. Like restaurant good! We made this last night and my entire family (including 4 yr old, 2 yr old AND 1 yr old) DEVOURED it. I seriously should have made more. Serious YUMMINESS! (oh, and SO EASY peasy!)

I made some tweaks to her recipe so I will write them here. Go to her site (i nom things) for pictures of HOW to make it and everything. This picture is hers...I made min with thin wheat spaghetti noodles.


Lemon Garlic Spaghetti – serves 2

4 oz dry spaghetti (I used whole wheat, thin spaghetti noodles)
1/4 cup grated parmesan
2 tsp olive oil
1 clove garlic
1/2 lemon (I used the stuff in a little lemon bottle)
2 tbsp pine nuts (didn't even use these...didn't have 'em)
5-6 basil leaves, chiffonaded (I used 1 tsp of dry)

Start a small pan on low with the oil and minced garlic. Cook on low until the garlic begins to brown (mine took about 15 min). Once that is going boil your noodles.

When the garlic is done, add the garlic (with the oil) to the noodles. Add the rest of the ingredients and serve.

YUM!...I think I will make this tomorrow too....

Next Monday, my AMAZING Butternut Squash Soup...AND IT FREEZES!!! Get excited. I AM!
