Lemon Fusilli

Fusilli can be substituted for any type of pasta, including whole wheat, corn and rice pastas. A perfect side dish for grilled chicken! Adapted from here.

  • 3/4 lb fusilli (approx)
  • 2-3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 C olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1/2 C fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1/4 C fresh lemon juice (I squeezed the juice out of one whole lemon)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh parmesan, grated

Cook pasta and drain. Leave in pot. Heat olive oil and butter in a small saucepan, and add minced garlic. Cook until garlic is tender. Pour oil and garlic mixture over pasta. Add the parsley, lemon juice, salt and pepper and toss. Put into a serving dish and top with the fresh parmesan.
