Garlic and Lemon Noodles

I made this for my boyfriend and my dinner last night. I had never tried this recipe before and it turned out to be a good one, especially for lemon lovers like me!

Spaghetti with Garlic and Lemon

1 lb spaghetti noodles
4 large garlic cloves, minced
½ to ¾ tsp red pepper flakes
½ cup extra virgin olive oil
finely grated zest from 2 lemons
fresh juice from 2 lemons
1 ½ tsp salt
½ tsp black pepper
½ cup fresh chopped parsley

Cook pasta in salted water until al dente. While pasta is boiling, cook garlic and red pepper in EVOO in a skillet over medium heat until the garlic is golden. Stir in zest, juice, salt pepper and ½ cup water and bring to a simmer. Add to pasta and parsley and stir until well mixed.

  1. I made this tonight and it was freakishly delicious. I added a little earth balance though but still, MMM. And everything was done so fast!
