Summer Pasta


Today I'm giving you a gem of a recipe - so summery, so lemony - so utterly delish I make it incessantly! I call it my summer pasta - it's so faboosh I'd serve it to a maharajah! To make things even better it's a cinch to make - it takes 15 minutes to prepare for heavens sake! I like to serve this with a tangy sweet white wine - paired with a crusty baguette and good olive oil makes this meal decidedly divine!

2 boxes quinoa pasta cooked til al dente, then drained

the juice and zest of 2 fresh lemons

1/3 cup good olive oil

1/2 cup fresh basil chopped

1/2 cup fresh flat leaf parsley chopped

6 oz fresh mozzarella pieces

coarse salt and pepper to taste

add all ingredients to a large pasta bowl, toss + enjoy!
