This is currently one of my favs. It's so simple too.


Your fav cooked pasta
chunky pcs of garlic that have been soaking in hot olive oil
fresh basil leaves
fresh squeezed lemon juice
fresh grated parmesan (optional)

It's so yummy! I prefer to skip the parmesan.

Here's some info on the basil herb. I'm going to purchase a plant myself to have indoors.

I make something similar.

I like to sautee a red onion and several cloves of garlic while the pasta cooks. I like to use cheese-filled spinach tortellini. Once the pasta is done I just toss in some basil, the onions and garlic, with olive oil or butter, and sprinkle with a bit of grated parmesan cheese.

It really is easy and delicious. Thinking about it, the lemon juice sounds like it'd be a nice touch.
