I got this recipe from Food Network's Everyday Italian. I've adjusted the amounts to cut down on calories. This is my "I'm tired, had a long day, don't feel like cooking, but still want something delicious for dinner" recipe. It goes great with some steamed veggies!


  1. Boil water and cook noodles 8-10 minutes.
  2. While the pasta is cooking, combine the olive oil, lemon juice, parmesan cheese, and basil. Mix well.
  3. Once the pasta is cooked, drain and separate between two plates. Add the olive oil and lemon mixture and serve.

Yummy! I used orzo pasta instead of spaghetti noodles and I added a little raw onion at the end and I loved it. Very quick, easy, and delicious. Thanks!

Easy lunch to make with leftover spaghetti noodles. A little too much parmesan for me but I think it would be fine for anyone else.
