Simple Lemon Pasta

Got out of bed at 2 p.m. and made pasta sooo 2021 is off to a….. start? I saw something similar to this on Bon Appetit recently which gave me the inspo and while I didn’t follow a recipe, I’ll share what I did! ⁣⁣⁣


Pasta of choice (I used Jon & Vinny’s)⁣⁣⁣

1/2 lemon – I picked mine right off my tree!

1/4 cup ghee (you can use olive oil or a vegan substitute) ⁣⁣⁣

1 clove garlic ⁣⁣⁣

Crushed red pepper⁣⁣⁣

Salt to taste⁣⁣⁣


Cook pasta until al dente⁣⁣⁣

In a skillet, heat ghee or oil over medium low heat and add thin slices of lemon and chopped garlic⁣⁣⁣

Simmer until both are browning ⁣⁣⁣

Toss with pasta and add crushed red pepper, sea salt and sprinkle with your choice of cheese (I used Parma! Vegan Parmesan) ⁣⁣⁣

Simple and delish! Happy New Year!
