Ok, so I really love recipes with lemon and garlic (I promise to switch it up next time) and this meal is one of my top favourites! I looked up a few recipes on pinterest and then experimented to make it my own! It is simple, cheap (great for my mat leave budget) and most importantly, delicious!
I used brussel sprouts because that is what I had at the time, but you can use any vegetable! I like the green contrast- broccoli, spinach, or peas would be good too.
Lemon Garlic Parmesan Pasta with Brussel Sprouts:
-1/2 cup (roughly) parmesan cheese
-2 Tbsp of Minced Garlic
-2 tbsp lemon juice
-any kind of pasta (I like spaghetti)
-1 cup of frozen brussel sprouts (sliced in half)
*I am horrible at measuring my ingredients- I love to cook freelance and taste as I go!*
-fry minced garlic in olive oil until golden brown
-add brussel sprouts and 2 tbsp lemon juice
-heat up and then turn to simmer
-at same time, boil water and cook spaghetti
-rinse spaghetti and pour in pan with brussel sprouts and garlic
-drizzle olive oil all over pasta
-squeeze juice from two lemons
-add salt and pepper and parmesan
-stir well with heat on medium high
-turn heat down and dish into bowl
-add pepper and parmesan to garnish
This pairs well with grilled chicken, or just on its own! It also goes great with a glass of white wine..yum!
