{lemon farfalle}

A good friend gave me the basics of this recipe, and then I made my own tweaks to it. My family loves it, and it's delicious!


1 lb. farfalle (bowties)
1/2 c. extra virgin olive oil (you can use less if you want to)
zest of 1 lemon
juice of 1 lemon
minced garlic, to taste (I used about 2 T.)
1 T. sugar
salt and pepper
green onions, chopped
fresh parsley, chopped

Cook pasta al dente. In a blender, combine the olive oil, lemon zest, lemon juice, salt, pepper, garlic and sugar. Blend well. Feel free to add more or less of something to your taste--this is a recipe that is easy to change around, depending on what you like.
Pour mixture over cooked pasta, then toss in green onions and parsley.
