Lemon Garlic Spaghetti

If you want pasta that tastes LIGHT and REFRESHING and is just like SPRINGTIME, this is it! Such a simple recipe shouldn't taste this good, but it really, really does.  It is also PERFECT for those nights that you just need something QUICK.

Lemon Garlic Spaghetti
3 to 4 tablespoons olive oil
2 to 3 cloves garlic
8 ounces thin spaghetti or angel hair pasta
1 lemon
Basil and thyme (I used dried because that's all I had, but fresh would be AMAZING!)
1/3 to 1/2 cup grated Parmesan
Fresh black pepper

Bring a pot of water to a boil for the pasta. Make sure to salt it when you add the pasta!

In a large frying pan, heat the olive and then add the garlic. Cook the garlic until it just starts to brown and then remove from the heat.

Cook the pasta in the boiling water and then drain. Toss pasta in the warm garlic oil in the frying pan. Squeeze the juice of the lemon over top and sprinkle with the herbs, cheese, and pepper. Toss until everything is coated. (If it seems dry, just add a little more olive oil to moisten.) Garnish with more cheese to serve.

TIP: Tarragon would also be great on it's own as the main herb of the dish. Some grilled fish or chicken would also be yummy if you wanted something a little more hearty.
