Quite possibly the easiest pasta recipe you’ll ever make! This is by far one of my go to’s at least every other week. Plus you can change it up by adding a protein, or some other goodies that I’ll mention at the bottom of the recipe 🙂

Ingredients:
1 box of spaghetti, vermicelli, fettuccine or linguine (I love using andean.dream quinoa spaghetti)
2 small lemons zested as well as the juice-reserve a bit of the zest for topping later
1-2 cloves garlic-will press through garlic press
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
1-2 tablespoons of butter
1/4 cup reserved pasta water
Small handful of chopped basil
Black pepper and sea salt to taste
Pinch of red pepper flakes
Parmesan cheese

Directions:
Cook pasta and drain (Pro-tip-add fresh spinach to bottom of colander and drain pasta over the top. The pasta water cooks the spinach and then you can mix into the pasta-extra veggies 🙌🏻 😉
*Make sure to rinse pasta with cold water if using gluten free noodles-this stops the pasta from cooking*

On low/medium heat, add garlic, lemon zest, olive oil and butter to pot. Add pasta back in with the reserved pasta water and mix to combine everything. Season with sea salt, cracked black pepper and crushed red pepper. Top with fresh basil , parmesan cheese and lemon zest.

*optional add ins: Capers, artichoke hearts, chicken, mushrooms, cherry tomatoes or eggplant. ENJOY 😗
