Here I am late yet again. Oh well. We had our Patrick family Christmas on Saturday and it was a good time. The cousins did a gift exchange and Tyler got a sweet CAT truck with Mega Bloks. He likes it a lot, and has been pushing it around the house ever since.
Here is this week's recipe:
BAKED LEMON PASTA
1 pound thin spaghetti
4 Tbsp Salted Butter
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
2 cloves Garlic, Minced
1 whole Lemon, Juiced and Zested
2 cups Sour Cream
1/2 tsp Kosher Salt, or more to taste
Plenty of Grated Parmesan Cheese
Flat-leaf Parsley, Chopped
Extra lemon juice
Cook spaghetti until al dente. In a skillet, melt butter with olive oil over LOW HEAT. When butter is melted, add minced garlic. Squeeze lemon juice into the pan. Turn off heat. Add sour cream and stir together. Add lemon zest and salt, taste, then add more salt if necessary. Pour mixture over drained spaghetti and stir together and pour into oven safe dish. Bake covered 15 minutes. Remove foil and bake another 7 - 10 minutes. When removed from oven, squeeze more lemon juice over top. Top generously with Parmesan, then chopped parsley. Give a final squeeze of lemon juice.
Serene with crusty French bread and green salad.
I really liked this, but Trevor wasn't a huge fan. He though it was too dry.
