Lemon Linguini

This is a delicious pasta dish, one I first enjoyed when my husband brought it to a summer barbecue back in college when we were "just friends". I must say he impressed me by bringing such a tasty homemade dish. I love the combination of zippy lemon {fresh from our lemon tree} and creamy Parmesan cheese in this and it really is a great potluck dish as it tastes great served at room temperature or even chilled! We had it tonight with our Cilantro-Lime Chicken and some sautéed Haricot Vert (aka skinny green beans). Try this with whole wheat pasta or even rice flour pasta if you are eating gluten free. Enjoy!

Lemon Linguini Recipe: (serves 4)

1 lb linguini pasta, cooked per package instructions to al dente
1/2 cup olive oil
the zest of 1 lemon
the juice of two lemons
1/2 cup green onion, diced
1/4 cup parsley (optional)
salt and pepper
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese

1. Whisk together olive oil, lemon zest and lemon juice.  Toss with pasta until coated.
2. Add in green onions, parsley, salt and pepper to taste and Parmesan cheese. Serve warm, room temperature or chilled, top with more Parmesan as desired.
