There’s an old, honest saying that goes, “Most of the world eats to live, but Italians live to eat” The thing that I like most about Italian cooking is how simple and fast it is. With only a few, quality ingredients you can create fabulous dinners. This recipe uses the Italian principles of keeping things fresh and basic, but with a a little twist on the traditional basil and lemon.
Here, I toss green veggies, chili, Thai basil and lime with elbow shaped pasta. The dish can be finished with a flurry of grated Parmesan and a sprinkle of sea salt.
Salt, chili and lime are a classic combo. They work well in this recipe, creating a feisty, healthy and unexpected weeknight pasta toss. It’ll help you get out of a boring broccoli rut.
