We tried this for supper last night and loved it! Not something we will do all the time but on occasion it is perfect. Very refreshing and different.

1 lb spagetti; cooked aldente and drained
4 tbs. salted butter
2 tbs olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 whole lemon; zested and juiced
2 cups (16oz) Sourcream
1/2 tsp Kosher salt
Grated parmesan cheese
1/2 lemon juiced

Preheat oven to 375*

In a skillet, melt butter with olice oil over low heat. When butter is melted add minced garlic. Squeeze lemon juice into pan. Turn off heat.

Add sourcream & stir mixture until well blended. Add lemon zest & salt. Taste and add more salt if needed. Pour mixture over drained noodles & stir together, then pour spaghetti into an oven safe dish.

Bake covered for 15 minutes, then remove foil and bake additional 7-10 minutes. (Don't overbake or it will dry out)

When you take it out of oven, squeeze a little more lemon juice over the top. Top generously with parmesian cheese. Give it a final squeeze of lemon & serve.

BTW....this would be great if

BTW....this would be great if you added sliced, grilled chicken to it. Next time we make it that is what I will do.

Sounds delicious!

I'm always looking for something to use with grilled chicken breasts (just-cooked or leftover). Thanks!

You can buy fajita strips

You can buy fajita strips that are already cooked and add them to make it easier.

Like the twist

I love spaghetti. It is one of my favorite dish. I like the twist one. I like cooking and more than that trying new recipe. I definitely going to try it. I think it will be super with grilled chicken. I can't resist to try this one. Thanks for sharing this article with us. ;)
