Lemon Linguine

Simple and summery - what more could you ask for? This tasty dish is from my friend, Beth, who could actually use a few meals right now as she just had a baby - but alas, she's in MO, so this is in her honor. :) And thankfully, Beth's mother lives right down the road, so I think she's taken care of!! This is such an easy dish to throw together last minute (as long as you have a lemon on hand) and it's just a nice twist to the typical spaghetti nights!

Lemon Linguine

1 lb Linguine
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley (or dried is fine)
1/2 cup olive oil
1 T lemon zest - you have to have this! We've tried it without and it's just not the same
3 - 4 T lemon juice - I use 3, 4 is just too lemony for us
Lots of Parmesan
1/2 cup chopped scallions
2 - 3 chicken breasts - cooked and cut into strips (optional)

--Cook pasts til done and drain.
--Combine parsley, oil, scallions, lemon zest and juice in large bowl.
--Add drained pasta and toss til well coated.
--Serve topped with lots of Parmesan and grilled/cooked chicken if you want!!
