Ann Dockendorf of Clearwater, Minnesota coats pasta with a succulent blend of lemon and herbs, then sprinkles it with Parmesan cheese. "Serve it as a versatile side dish...or dress it up with cooked chicken or ham for a delicious entree," she writes.

Ingredients

  • 8 ounces linguine
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt-free lemon-pepper seasoning
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

  1. In a saucepan, cook linguine in boiling water for 8-10 minutes or until tender. Meanwhile, in another saucepan, combine butter, lemon juice, basil, garlic powder and lemon-pepper; cook and stir until butter is melted. Drain linguine; add to butter mixture and toss to coat. Add Parmesan cheese and toss.
