Linguine with Garlic, Herbs and Lemon

A simple pasta dish made with fresh ingredients. Herbs that work well with this dish are basil, tarragon, marjoram, oregano, parsley, dill, thyme, chives, cilantro, chervil and mint. I like to go heavy on the basil(about a cup) and then combine one or two other herbs.

directions

  • Bring 4 quarts of water to a boil in a large pot.
  • Meanwhile, warm oil and garlic in a skillet over medium heat.
  • Cook until the garlic is fragrant, being careful not to brown or burn.
  • Remove the skillet from the heat and stir in the lemon zest and salt to taste.
  • The water should be close to boiling.
  • At this point, add salt and the linguine.
  • Cook until pasta is al dente (follow the directions on the package since cooking times vary product to product).
  • Reserve 1/2 cup of the pasta water in a small bowl.
  • When pasta is cooked, drain and toss with garlic mixture, herbs and lemon juice.
  • Add the reserved pasta water as needed to keep the pasta moist and a little saucy.
  • Serve immediately.

    Light, delicious and easy. I used a combination of basil, cilantro and a tiny bit of mint. I cut down the oil to just a teaspoon, as we are watching our fat intake.

    We had this last night for dinner. (I used basil alone since that was all that I had in the house) It was extremely easy to make. It was also very refreshing and not at all heavy. I ate 2 servings! With a salad and garlic bread, this makes a quick, summery meal. Thanks for the recipe.
