Here’s a simple pasta recipe that’s delicious with or without meat. Anytime the hubby and I have a hankering for a non-salad vegetarian meal, this is our go to. Between our busy schedules, cooking an elaborate meal is few and far between, so I often try recipes that don’t take longer than 30 minutes to make–this is one of them!
3 tablespoons minced garlic
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
6 tablespoons lemon juice
4 chicken flavor bouillon cubes
1/2 teaspoon pepper (fresh ground is best)
1 lb. spaghetti or 1 lb. angel hair pasta, cooked to package directions
1/2 cup freshly shredded Parmesan cheese (optional)
1/4 cup parsley
1 tbsp. basil
How to make:
1. In large skillet, cook garlic in olive oil on medium heat until golden.
2. Add lemon juice, bouillon, basil and pepper.
3. Cook and stir until bouillon dissolves.
4. In large bowl, toss pasta, garlic mixture and parsley; serve immediately. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese for an extra boost of protein!
It’s a delightful concoction, yielding 6 servings at approx. 90 calories/serving (without Parmesan cheese).
The best part about this recipe is you can easily add some grilled chicken with some quartered artichokes to really bring the flavor full throttle.
So go ahead, get that apron out of the back closet–dinner will be served in just a jiffy. 😀 Enjoy!
Peace, Love, and Live Life Full,
