    1. 1
      Cook spaghetti until al dente (about 10-12 minutes.) Mix lemon juice, olive oil, and basil in separate jar. Strain noodles and place in a large bowl. Mix with lemon mixture. While still hot, mix in butter in order for it to melt with the pasta. Top with cheese.
    2. 2
      To make it more moist, you can add as much of the lemon-oil dressing as you'd like! Just be sure to add an even amount of both to make the sauce :).

      I cut the recipe in half since it was just me for lunch. This was ok, but a little dry to me. Next time, I'll make the full amount and see if that makes a difference. Made for PAC Fall 2009.
