Lemon Herb Pasta
~completely jacked and then slightly altered from cuisinenie~
1/2 pound whole wheat pasta
1 tablespoon butter (i used a little more than 2 tbs to make it a bit creamier…)
(i also added 1/4 cup of 1/2 & 1/2 to cream it up just a tad too)
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup finely chopped fresh herbs, such as parsley, tarragon, and chives
(i happened to have fresh basil too…yum.)
(we also added some parmesan to serve it too and it was a good decision)
in a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta until al dente according to package instructions. drain, but leave just a hint of the pasta water (like you do to make your mac n cheese a little creamy like). return to pot.
stir in butter, lemon zest, juice, and herbs; season with salt and pepper (go to town with the salt. it brings out the other flavors). top with crumbled feta.
way fast and easy.
and it is one i will think of next time i go,
“oh crap, i have to make something naughty in 15 minutes!!”
