Pasta with Red Pepper, Butter, Garlic, Olive Oil and Lemon

This is simple, quick and great. It is my meal, when I’m craving pasta but don’t have much time to prepare anything.

Please don’t even think about using bottled lemon juice as the kick comes from the fresh juice. Pure comfort food for me, and something I crave desperately when I’m traveling away from home.

Ingredients

2 Tbsp. Butter
2 Tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 clove fresh Garlic, crushed
Juice of one Lemon
2 tsp of Red Chili Pepper flakes 
Parmesan Cheese

Start your water in a large pot. While your waiting for the water to boil, blend all the ingredients in a deep serving dish. After the water begins to boil, add 1 tbsp of salt and add your pasta. I prefer long dry pasta like spaghetti, linguine or fettuccine.

When the pasta is cooked, drain it and pour into the bowl. Allow to sit for 30 seconds, to warm the oil/butter mixture and then toss, add parmesan cheese and serve.
