The weather is starting to heat up along the East Coast, so I thought it’s only fitting to embrace the spring vibes with some fresh lemons. I have been watching Get Organized with the Home Edit on Netflix this weekend and it has inspired me to organize all the drawers and cupboards in the kitchen. In this quest I found some forgotten spaghetti, black pepper, and crushed pepper lurking at the back. These would perfectly balance out the citrus notes of the lemon. This is an easy meatless but flavorful lemon parsley pasta that uses a lot of pantry items.
- 1 cup Spaghetti
- ½ lemon
- 2 tbsp chopped parsley
- grape tomatoes (chopped)
- black pepper
- 2 garlic cloves (chopped)
