A wonderful pasta meal that is healthy! I found this recipe from a women's fitness magazine. The recipe is from Fitness magazine under their monthly "The Fit Life" "meal-o-matic" recipes. My husband and I eat this at least once a week.

delicious, easy, inexpensive and healthy. i used the lemon juice, but allowed lots of pulp to get in the sautee pan as well. i let it sautee till the garlic was just browned; not dark brown. i did add a tiny bit of crushed red pepper for some heat, and i used really good shaved parm cheese; not the stuff in the green can. i will make this again. the taste was very light but very flavorful and the dish left you feeling satisfied but not stuffed. thanks so much for sharing!

  1. The directions for this pasta were very vague, but it is easy to make. Experiment with quantity until you find the right amount of flavors for you. I don't like it too lemony.
  2. Cook the pasta according to package directions.
  3. Sauté the olive oil and garlic cloves. Sauté until cloves a light golden brown.
  4. Add lemon juice and cook for around 2 minutes Toss and serve immediately with a grating of parmesan cheese on each serving.
  5. Optional: grill chicken breasts, cut into strips and add to the pasta.
