One Pot Creamy Garlic Parmesan Pasta

one pot garlic parmesan pasta recipe

This meal falls right into the ‘quick to make yet so very delicious’ category of dishes.

With only a few ingredients to use and one pot to put them in to be cooked all at the same time, this recipe is the perfect choice for a weeknight dinner.

To imagine the taste, just think of Fettuccine Alfredo, but without the heavy cream or cream cheese.

And as the garlic and Parmesan combination in the title already promises, this pasta is incredibly yummy and truly impossible to resist. We loved it!

Enjoy!

With lots of love,

Lemon Spaghetti

When I stumbled upon a Lemon Pasta recipe a few days ago, the whole concept seemed so unusual and intriguing to me that I just knew I had to try it.

And the result?

Absolutely gorgeous!

This simple dish is full of nicely balanced bright flavors. The combination of lemon and garlic is a match made in heaven. And the addition of Parmesan cheese brings just about anything to a whole different level of the greatest kind.

Simple, refreshing, satisfying. I wholeheartedly recommend this meal to you.
