This particular day was no different. While us parents had no clue as to what we wanted for supper, the children all agreed on spaghetti. Unfortunately, the husband and I weren't "feeling" it. So, I took to the internet for pasta dishes, something different that could satisfy the whole family. And then I found the blog of Isabelle at Home. When I began browsing her wonderful array of recipes, I came across one that just peaked my curiosity. "Pasta... with lemon. Hummm. Wonder what that flavor combination tastes like." I began to "feel" it!
I had majority of the ingredients already on hand. Instead of heading to the local grocery mart, I decided to create this dish with the ingredients I had on hand. I am so glad we did. The bold lemon flavor certainly brought out the best in this dish. And the best part is, the whole family "felt" that way!
