this is my latest pasta craze... :-) i'm the kind who kept on cooking the same pasta recipe discovered over and over until i grow tired of it... hehe
i can't remember where exactly I got the idea for a lemon-garlic pasta... but I think i've tried it or seen it in menus of one of pasta restos in Manila before... and since my discovery of lemons being sold at La Tienda here in Zamboanga, this pasta with lemon garlic sauce had become my usual...
for this batch i've used our newly harvested prawns sauteed with fresh basil leaves as my topping... although the pasta and the sauce is already good as it is... i guess, it's that Filipino thing that always make me look for something to top my pasta.

|as of this post, i am still in this lemon-garlic pasta craze... hehehe am already thinking already what to top my pasta this weekend|
lemon-garlic pasta recipe:
125g penne pasta (or any pasta you like)
4 tablespoon olive oil
6 gloves of garlic (finely chopped)
lemon juice (squeezed from 1 lemon)
salt & pepper
cook pasta as indicated in pack.
in another pan, saute garlic in olive until golden brown. lower the heat at this point. add a dash of salt & pepper to your liking. :-) then add the lemon juice and let all the ingredients mix for a minute or less. bring in the cooked pasta, ensure every pasta is coated by the lemon-garlic-olive oil mixture. turn off the heat and add as much parmesan cheese as you like. :-)
at this point, the pasta with the lemon-garlic and parmesan is already good as it is... if you want to put some toppings, make sure you don't mix it with the pasta...otherwise the topping may overpower the lemon-garlic combi and you won't get to appreciate it. treat the toppings like an ulam to rice thing.
