This has a hint of lemon and makes a great side-dish to any meal, especially chicken. It has a little garlic, olive oil, and Parmesan cheese. Yummy! This is especially good served with Italian Stuffed Chicken Breast.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook the pasta and drain.
  2. While the pasta is cooking, in a large skillet, saute parsley, lemon peel and garlic in oil till garlic is tender (be careful not to burn the garlic).
  3. Add the drained pasta to the skillet.

  5. Top with Parmesan cheese.

Very nice -- made according to recipe, except my spaghetti-type pasta had disappeared ! Used tri-color wheels -- didn't look as appetizing, but was nice and lemony fresh. We have a huge amount of flat-leaf parsley, and was so fragrant while warming. I also had a small zucchini, which I halved, seeded, and finely chopped to saute with the garlic.Thanks for posting, Mimi -(another Mimi in MD!)

I love lemon anything! I was looking for a nice lemon pasta recipe and low and behold here it is! This was devine with my Sauteed Sea Scallops. I am so glad to have found this recipe and will use it often to accompany my main dishes!

This tastes amazing....the fact that it does not take long to prepare is a ++++. I usually just omit the lemon peel grating and just squeeze lemon juice in there and it comes out wonderfully. A perfect complement to your entree.
