Quick and Easy Lemon Garlic Pasta

Wow, I have some catching up to do. I've been away from my blog for quite some time now. Rob was out of town the biggest part of last week, so I didn't do a lot of cooking. Then Stella got a sinus infection, and my allergies have really had me down, so I just didn't have the energy to cook later in the week.

I did manage to throw together the Lemon Garlic Pasta from Eat Drink and Be Vegan for Friday nights dinner. For something so quick and easy, this meal is delish! A great go-to meal when you don't have a lot of time, but want something a bit more elegant than spaghetti with sauce from a jar. This entire dish only takes the amount of time it takes your pasta to cook. While the water boils and the pasta cooks, you just juice some lemons, add in some EVOO, some garlic and some salt and pepper. Whisk it all up, and once you've drained the pasta, return it to the pot, toss it with the lemon dressing and top it with pine nuts and basil before serving. It's a nice light way to enjoy your pasta, especially refreshing for the summer.
