Linguine in Lemon Cream Sauce

I found an easy recipe in this months edition of Vegetarian Times that I had to try... Linguine in Lemon Cream Sauce.  UMMMM :)


8 oz dry linguine
1/2 cup light cream cheese
2 Tbs olive oil
1 lemon, juiced and 1 Tbs. zest grated
1/2 cup chopped parsley

1. Cook linguine according to package directions in pot of boiling salted water.

2. Warm cream cheese, oil, and 2 Tbs lemon juice in saucepan over low heat.

3. Drain pasta, reserving 1/2 cup cooking water.  Stir reserved cooking water into cream cheese mixture.  Add pasta, lemon zest, and parsley, toss to coat.  Season with salt and pepper, if desired.

Per 1 serving: 343 calories

In my opinion this was a fast and simple recipe.  It also had that hint of summertime in it with the lemons :)

And don't forget your special helpers when making it :)
