summer food.

lemon garlic spaghetti paired with white wine aptly named 'Relax' (which you can get at target and is the best white wine i have had). i tried this recipe and it is now our favorite pasta dish.
its light and delicious and i can't wait to make it again. hope you feel the same!
4oz dried spaghetti (i used whole wheat)
1/4 cup grated parmesan
2 tsp olive oil
1 clove garlic
1/2 lemon
2 tbsp pine nuts
5-6 basil leaves, chiffonaded

to make:
First, start your garlic oil. Pour in olive oil and chopped up garlic into a small frying pan and let it cook over low, until the garlic starts to brown on edges. Immediately remove from heat and reserve.While that’s starting up, boil up some spaghetti.
Chiffonade some basil leaves. Then take cheese, pine nuts and dump it into a large bowl, with the garlic oil, garlic chunks and all. Squeeze in lemon juice. Throw in the spaghetti and toss until well combined. Platecrack some black pepper on it, and enjoy. (recipe courtesy of www.inomthings.com)
