It is made with fresh parmesan cheese, garlic and parsley then it’s coated in a oily lemon sauce. 

It also has a hint of tang to it from the fresh lemon that you’re sure to love.

The great thing about this recipe is that you can have it on the table in less than 15 minutes to make.

Easy peasy right? All your basically doing is boiling some water, adding some pasta. 

Then seasoning it with fresh lemon juice, garlic and parmesan cheese. 

You cannot go wrong with this one! Feel free to add some cooked shrimp or chicken on top to if you’d like. 

Feel free to add some sliced chicken breasts or shrimp on top if desired.

Lemon Parmesan Garlic Spaghetti


In comparison to most spaghetti recipes, it is. However keep in mind that Spaghetti is not gluten free. 

With no heavy creams or sauces, this dish is actually one of the more healthy pasta dishes out their. So please do not feel guilty, everything in moderation right?

I like this recipe for those times where I am just craving some good pasta.  

Just make sure your using a good quality spaghetti as it will make a world of difference in how this plate tastes.

Also, you can go ahead and fancy this dish up a bit and serve it alongside a nice caesar salad and a glass of white wine.

Who said eating good had to be expensive? 

You can also add cooked chicken breasts or shrimp on top this pasta as well.


Simply find a package that is 100% gluten free and your good to go.

Who said those with Gluten allergies could not enjoy a good pasta dish too!

Sometimes I will add cherry tomatoes and spinach as well, so feel free to do that if you desire. 

Also be sure you are using a lot of fresh cheese and lemons and you will be eating like the Italians in AbruzzoOsseo apperito!
