- 250g Donna Pastaia Garlic Chives Spaghetti
- 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- Zest of 1 lemon

- 2 cloves of garlic, minced
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
- Salt and pepper to taste

Cook the Garlic Chives Spaghetti: Fill a large pot with salted water and bring it to a boil. Add the Garlic Chives Spaghetti and cook according to the package instructions until al dente. Drain the pasta, reserving a small cup of the pasta water.
Prepare the Lemon and Olive Oil Sauce: In a small bowl, whisk together the extra virgin olive oil, lemon zest, lemon juice, minced garlic, chopped fresh parsley, salt, and pepper. Set the sauce aside.
Combine the Sauce and Pasta: In a large skillet, heat a drizzle of olive oil over medium heat. Add the cooked Garlic Chives Spaghetti to the skillet and pour the lemon and olive oil sauce over the pasta. Toss gently to coat the pasta evenly with the zesty sauce. If needed, add a splash of the reserved pasta water to enhance the sauce's texture.
Serve and Garnish: Transfer the Garlic Chives Spaghetti in Lemon and Olive Oil Sauce to serving plates or bowls. Sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese and garnish with fresh parsley leaves for an added touch of flavour and freshness.
Serving and Plating Suggestions:
- Enhance the dish with additional ingredients such as grilled shrimp, or sautéed asparagus for added texture and complexity.
- Serve with a side of mixed greens or arugula salad dressed with a caesar dressing to create a refreshing contrast.
- Pair with a glass of crisp white wine, such as Pinot Grigio or Vermentino, to complement the zesty flavors of the lemon and olive oil sauce.
- Sprinkle some red pepper flakes over the pasta for a hint of heat, if desired.
