Light and healthy pasta in minutes!
- 12 ounces whole wheat spaghetti (1 package)
- 4 tablespoons lemon juice
- 4 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 tablespoon basil
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1⁄4 cup parmesan cheese
- 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.
- 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.
