I had purchased some cream (never go to the grocery store hungry) on my last shopping trip, thinking I’d look for some recipes that sounded good. I perused about 6 of them using lemons, and then I experimented.
|Lemon-garlic pasta with chicken.|
I liked how this turned out. If I made it again I would maybe add some cayenne pepper or a few red pepper flakes for some heat. But it was tasty, as it was. Here are the ingredients.
1/2 cube real butter
1 teaspoon minced garlic or 2 garlic cloves crushed
1 Tablespoon flour (for thickening the sauce)
1/4 teaspoon lemon pepper
1 teaspoon parsley flakes for garnish
1/3-1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
1/3 cup chicken stock
2 T. lemon juice
1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and add the pasta. While pasta is cooking fry up the chicken or devein the shrimp.
|I added a spinach salad with red onion, mushrooms, sliced almonds, blackberries, and raspberry vinaigrette. It was a delicious side dish to the lemon-garlic pasta.|
Here is a chart to help if you run out of garlic cloves and have to substitute minced garlic in a jar or garlic salt. You can also make this recipe with shrimp. Just simmer the shrimp in the sauce for about 3 minutes per side till it turns pink on the edges. Enjoy!
