Packed full of bold flavors, this pasta dish is not for wimpy taste buds. You have to really love lemon, garlic and Parmesan. Due to the lingering odiferous characteristics of the dish, be sure all your dinner guests partake. This pasta is equally good served hot or at room temperature.
Note: You should have all the ingredients ready to go as this sauce is made in the short time it takes to drain the cooked pasta. Be sure to reserve 1 1/2 cups of the pasta cooking water before you drain it.
Cook pasta according to package instructions, adding the recommended amount of salt to the water. When done reserve 1 1/2 cups of the water before pouring the pasta into a colander to drain.
Using the same stock pot that the pasta was cooked in, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the crushed garlic and saute for a minute or two until very fragrant. Add the lemon juice and only 1 cup of pasta cooking water (reserving the other 1/2 cup in case you need it later). Stir and cook for a minute or so; season with a little salt and lots of fresh cracked pepper (watch the salt—the pasta water and cheese are very salty).
Remove pot from heat. Add drained pasta back into the pot, add the Parmesan and parsley and mix well (add more pasta water if needed). Garnish and serve.
Garnish options: grated lemon zest, crushed red pepper flakes, reserved Parmesan and parsley, and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.
Weeknight dinners can be a monumental task for families on the run. Late meetings at work, sporting events, or last minute shopping trips, there are tons are reasons not to have a homemade meal. But savvy cooks know the slow cooker can be a home cook’s best friend. This recipe is a spin on the traditional Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich. By using chicken breasts, the meal is instantly lightened.
