My family loves pasta, and we usually have some type of pasta dish once a week. This recipe is very easy and quick, using ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry. This is a flavorful buttery lemon pasta that I add chicken to (but you can totally leave out the chicken) and is definitely a crowd pleaser!
Here’s what you need:
- 1 lb thin spaghetti or capellini pasta noodles
- 1 and 1/2 sticks unsalted butter
- the zest and juice of 2 large lemons
- 2 tsp salt and 1 tsp pepper
- diced cooked chicken (optional)
Cut up and sauté two chicken breasts, and set to the side.
Zest and juice your lemons.
Heat butter until bubbling in a large saucepan. Add the zest and the lemon juice.
Boil, and then add your salt, pepper, and chicken.
Boil for a few minutes while you drain the pasta.
Add sauce to pasta and mix up!
That’s it! So easy and sooo delicious. I like to add a little bit of parsley to the top just to make it look a lil fancy.
It is so delish and so fresh tasting! It’s one of my favorite dinners.
