Baked Lemon Pasta
I love simple dishes like this. They remind me of my single vegetarian days in L.A. when I’d often come home from work and find a total of three grocery items in my kitchen. This is in contrast to the 9.446 grocery items in my kitchen now—everything from bacon grease to a freezer full of beef, but we won’t go there today. Lemon is an unlikely flavoring for pasta, but oh…is it ever refreshing and good, especially in the spring and summer. This is a baked version, but if you’re in a hurry there’s nothing more delicious than this: saute butter and olive oil, add chopped garlic. Squeeze in the juice of a couple of lemons and add in some of the zest. There’s something about this baked version, though, that I just love. That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it. This recipe may be doubled, tripled, or octupled—it’s totally easy. The Cast of Characters: Spaghetti, lemons, garlic, butter, sour cream, olive oil, salt, Parmesan cheese, and parsley. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Oh, yum. Enjoy!
