I’ve made this pasta dish twice now and it is so delicious! The bright lemon flavor mixed with the slight heat from the red pepper is heavenly! Enjoy : )
Easy Lemon Pasta with Chicken
1 pound penne pasta
2 chicken breasts
Salt and pepper
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
3 Tablespoons olive oil
2 lemons, juiced
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
Cook the pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water, until al dente. Drain well.
Season chicken with salt and pepper. Cook chicken until done and cut into pieces.
Add the garlic and red pepper flakes to a saute pan with 3 tablespoons of olive oil and saute until fragrant. Add the cooked pasta and turn heat off. Mix all together.
Remove pasta to a large bowl. Add chicken to the warm pasta and season with salt and pepper. Add the juice of 2 lemons and mix. Before serving top with parmesan cheese.
