Pasta is always a good option for a quick easy meal.
Pasta is so versatile, and I like that I can use basically anything I can find in the fridge to corporate into a pasta dish.
So when I have a lot of lemons in the house, what do I do?
I make lemon pasta!
Especially when I have something like this in my pantry.
It seems that I was meant to make lemon pasta, right?
Terry found this pasta along with two other kinds (spinach and tomato) at Aldi.
Aldi always has some interesting things to try.
They have a lot of things made in Europe that you don’t find at other grocery stores, the quality typically seems pretty good.
This pasta is so beautiful, and I could just keep a bowl like this on a table to look at!
But I need to put food on the table.
Freshly cooked fancy (well, that’s what the package says!) lemon bow tie pasta was combined with olive oil, peas, kale, and garlic bread crumbs.
And served with lemon zest.
Fresh and simple.
And super tasty.
The soup on the table was ginger carrot soup I quickly put together at the last minute.
