I must think I live in the southern hemisphere because it’s summer in my apartment or at least my cooking is very summery. Lots of my cooking comes together just by looking around the kitchen and picking out things I imagine will taste good together. If you are looking for something light to eat with all this heavy winter food I’ve got the recipe for you.
Lemon Pepper Pasta
1 box Farfalle pasta
1 red pepper, sliced into 1/2 inch strips
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup pine nuts
1 teaspoon lemon peel
1/4 fresh basil, chopped
salt and pepper, to taste
- Cook pasta according to package.
- In a medium pan heat olive oil over medium high heat. Saute lemon peel, garlic, pine nuts and onions until onions are near clear. Add red pepper and cook until crisp tender. Squeeze juice of half of lemon in and cook to mix flavors.
- Toss pasta with a little bit of olive oil and sauteed vegetables. Sprinkle with basil.
