Lemon Linguine

Pasta is one of my absolute favorite dishes. Whenever I dine out, my eyes find the pasta sections on the menu first. There are so many types of pastas, various sauces and numerous cheeses that there are truly endless combinations.

I have many favorites; gnocchi is at the very top of my list. This Lemon Linguine is right behind it.

The fact that I LOVE lemon is an understatement. And that is why this pasta dish is one of my favorite indulgences. The lemon-Parmesan-chives-sour cream combination is ideal.....and easy to throw together.

It's so simple it should be illegal. All of the ingredients are probably in your pantry right now, and it's almost a one-pot deal.

This pasta dish comes together so quickly, I advise you have all of the ingredients measured out and ready before starting.

Lemon Linguine

Serves 4-6

8 oz linguine
1/4 c minced onion
3 gloves garlic, minced
1 Tbsp butter, melted
8 oz sour cream
4 Tbsp grated Parmesan, divided
1 Tbsp milk
1 3/4 tsp lemon-pepper seasoning
1/4 tsp salt
1 lemon, zested + 1 Tbsp juice
2 Tbsp chopped parsley
2 Tbsp chopped chives

Cook linguine according to package directions. Drain and keep warm. In a skillet, cook onion and garlic in butter, stirring constantly until tender, not brown. Stir in sour cream, 2 Tbsp Parmesan, milk, seasonings, lemon juice and zest. Cook about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and pour over linguine. Toss gently, adding parsley, chives and remaining cheese. Serve warm.

*NOTE: Mr. B likes his with caramelized onions and mushrooms.

With Love and God Bless,
