LEMON SPAGHETTI is a light pasta recipe that everyone goes wild for! Even my kids couldn’t get enough!
I first had lemon spaghetti on a trip to Las Vegas with my husband. I like lemon things even lemon chicken but I wasn’t too sure about the Lemon Spaghetti. I was wrong. From the first bite I knew I had been missing out all my life. The flavor is so bright and refreshing that it’s my go to pasta dish during the hot summer months. I was in heaven when I learned how easy it is to make! The sauce doesn’t have to be cooked! You mix it in a bowl and then the hot pasta brings it up to temperature!!! So amazing, right!!!
This dish would be great with a chicken dinner or with shrimp, crab or even lobster! Think about that for a minute. Lobster Lemon Spaghetti! My mouth may be watering right now! There are so many options or you could do what I did the other day and make a batch of Lemon Spaghetti, pour a glass of white wine and sit out back to eat dinner. I just enjoyed the last bit of summer and it was amazing!
