lemon pasta

i have a confession… i am a terrible, awful cook.  i burn everything.  but one thing i can do is pasta, and one of my favorite spring/summer dishes is lemon pasta. i know it sounds really simple – and it is – but i’d never had it until a guy made it for me and to this day i still can’t make it as well as he did, but i’m sure you guys can.

all i really do is make pasta as i would normally (my favorite kind is angel hair pasta), and for sauce i mix together some butter, olive oil and lemon juice  in a pan and drizzle on top, add some pepper and that’s it. but i was looking around online, and i think this would be amazing with some snow peas or edamame mixed in, and apparently some chopped parsley makes a great garnish :)

i found a few yummy recipes around the web if you want to try them, here, here and here.

  1. Lemon pasta is so good especially in the summer, and it’s great cold. I use to make it with scallops, green onions, and rice pasta. I’ve also made it with raw cherry tomatoes, leeks, and smoked salmon yum!

  2. Honestly-this looks amazing! Think I’ll be testing it out in the next few days. Perfect for this wonderful weather we’re having in Philly!
