What are flavors that remind you of summer? For me, one flavor is lemon! I love making fresh lemonade, and adding lemon to something I am cooking gives it an extra dimension.
Such is the case for this recipe today. It comes from THE SUMMER BOOK by Susan Branch.
|Ready to add the pasta!|
|Topped with chicken browned with garlic! Yum!|
1 pound linguini
1/2 cup olive oil
Zest from one lemon
Juice from two lemons
1/2 cup chopped green onion
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
salt and freshly ground pepper
Lots of Parmesan cheese
Cook linguini in boiling salted water till done; drain well. Combine next five ingredients in a large serving bowl. Add pasta and toss well. Sprinkle over salt and freshly ground pepper - toss in Parmesan to taste. Serve, or toss in additional ingredients of your choice such as steamed shrimp and asparagus spears; roasted green beans and grilled chicken strips; or chopped tomatoes, slivered fresh basil and toasted pine nuts. I browned boneless chicken breast strips in garlic-infused olive oil! Delicious!
