Meatless Monday - Lemon Pasta

Making dishes that seem gourmet but are really easy is the best. If you are entertaining an easy meal that doesn't taste easy to make is impressive and relaxing and a very nice meal after a hard day at work is a great reward. This is one of those dishes. Don't tell anyone how easy it is.

  • 1 pound spaghetti
  • 2/3 cup olive oil
  • Juice from 2 lemons
  • 8 oz sliced baby bella mushrooms
  • 3/4 teaspoon sea salt (Kosher salt)
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Zest from 2 lemons
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 4 sprigs thyme
Start the water boiling for the pasta, follow the package instructions for cooking.

While the water is boiling mix the olive oil, lemon juice, mushrooms, salt, and garlic in a large serving bowl (preferably hand made).  When the pasta is done cooking place it in the bowl, top with cheese, lemon zest and about 2/3 of the herbs.  Toss well, top with the remainder of the herbs.  Serve.

  1. you could put garlic, lemon, parsley and cheese on a shoe and I might eat it.
    This sounds like another for the list.

  2. You could put a shoe on pasta and I might eat it! This is such a good base, with lots of room for add ons, like shrimp, or basil, or asparagus, or, or ,or..... So many possibilities!
    I'll be fixing this one for dinner this week for sure!

  3. Who knew shoes were such a popular food item?? LOL.
    This is one of my favorite springtime, summer and heck, even fall, dishes!

  4. I finally got brilliant, instead of writing these recipes down I'm just taking a screen shot with my iPad, and I created a recipe album!

    1. Great idea Tracey, you could also enter "meatless monday" (without the quotes) in the search box at the top of the blog, that should bring you to all of the recipes.

    2. will this one go under things to put on shoes?
