    koala girl's Note:

    So quick and easy to make. This is really simple but lovely and filling, the fragrances of the basil and the lemon go together so well and it really takes only ten minutes to make as you can grate the parmesan while the pasta is cooking. This recipe is from a newspaper recipe section.

      This is outstanding! I served it with some grilled swordfish and a salad. What a great meal! Really this is one of those very simple, truly perfect recipes in which the sum of a few great ingredients is greater than its parts. A permanent addition to the list! Thanks, Koala Girl!
