Lemon Garlic Pasta

If you are a lemon fan like me then this quick and easy recipe is a must. Everything that I needed I already had at the house, which is always a plus. I did omit one of the ingredients from the original recipe from I Nom Things and that was the pine nuts, I didn’t have those, but will need to add those next time.

Ingredients:
4 oz dry pasta
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 clove garlic
1/2 lemon
5-6 basil leaves

Directions:
1. In a pan boil salted water and cook pasta al dente.
2. While pasta is cooking start the garlic oil. Pour the oil into a small pan and add the chopped garlic. Let it cook on low until garlic starts to brown, then immediately remove from heat.
3. In a large bowl mix the garlic oil, and squeeze the juice of the lemon into the bowl. Add the basil, when pasta is cooked drain and add pasta to the sauce, tossing to mix. Place grated Parmesan cheese on top and serve.
