Lemon Pasta
Lemon Pasta

I came up with this quick, inexpensive side dish which will compliment meat or fish. You could even add in some cooked chicken, pork or shrimp, a bag of stir fry vegetables and you have a meal.  Make it with high fiber – high protein pasta and it is very healthy too!

8 oz. uncooked spaghetti
