Introduction

This recipe is adapted from Rachael Ray's Lemon Spaghetti This recipe is adapted from Rachael Ray's Lemon Spaghetti
Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    1/2 lb angel hair pasta
    4 cloves of garlic
    1/2 t. crushed red pepper
    Perfect Chicken, cut into chunks
    2 lemons, zested and juiced
    3/4 c. half-and-half
    1 c. Parmesan, grated (or shredded)
    1 c. baby spinach, stems removed
    3 T. extra virgin olive oil

Directions

ring a pot of water to a boil. Salt the water well, and add pasta. Heat a large skillet over low heat. Add oil, garlic, and crushed red pepper. Cook until the oil sizzles (about 7-10 minutes). Add lemon juice, half-and-half, and a ladle of the pasta water to the garlic oil mixture. Raise the heat to med-low to med heat until the sauce begins to bubble. Drain pasta - DO NOT RINSE. Add the pasta, zest, and 1/2 c. Parmesan to the cream sauce. Toss for a minute or two. Add chicken and spinach, and toss until well distributed. Top with remaining cheese. Enjoy!

Side note: If your pasta is cooking too quickly, just take the pot off the heat, but leave the pasta in the hot water. The pasta will continue to cook, just at a slower pace. I have to use this trick almost every time.

Serving Size: Makes 4 Servings (2 oz pasta, 4 oz chicken)
