Lemon Herb Pasta

When you cook with a variety of herbs and spices and fresh fruit, there’s nothing quite like adding a bit of citrus grapefruit, orange, lime, or lemon – into a dish to make the flavors POP. My Lemon Herb pasta is perfect as a main course or side with your favorite protein! If you’re Vegan, make this recipe with Tofu and Vegan Parmesan! For added crunch and protein, add in pistachio nuts or walnuts.
