This Lemon Garlic Pasta top with roasted tomatoes & asparagus is full of fresh flavors, bright colors, & is simple enough for dinner any night of the week!
Well, hello there, big, bright, & beautiful bowl of Lemon Garlic Pasta!
Yes, you read that right, I’m talking to my food again.
When a dish is this tasty there’s nothing to do but sing it’s praise before happily devouring every last bite of pasta!
And this isn’t any normal pasta, a dish this good deserves a memorable & premium pasta, so I elevated my meal with Barilla® Collezione Bucatini.
I know Lemon Garlic Pasta sounds like a summer meal, but the roasted tomatoes & asparagus give it a warm & comforting feeling that makes this dish perfect for the fall & winter months too!
Before I had even plated this Lemon Garlic Pasta I was sneaking bites.
I love it when a dish doesn’t need a lot of seasoning because the ingredients are so flavorful on their own!
And let me tell you, I had a hard time choosing between Barilla® Collezione’s 6 artisanal pasta shapes (& Barilla®’s signature Tortellini) which are crafted using traditional Italian bronze plates for a homemade “al dente” texture that perfectly holds sauces every time.
I finally decided on the Barilla® Collezione Bucatini which I picked up at Publix, but you could make this Lemon Garlic Pasta recipe again & again while trying out all of the Barilla® Collezione artisanal pasta shapes which are made with non-GMO ingredients.
Since this is one of my new favorite pasta dishes you can be sure that I’ll be enjoying this recipe time & again all year round!
And because this Lemon Garlic Pasta with Barilla® Collezione Bucatini is so easy to create you can enjoy it any weeknight in which you are looking for a gourmet, artisan meal that’s simple to prepare & full of fresh flavors.
This recipe serves 4 people, but you can easily half it for a romantic dinner at home for 2 or even double the recipe for a last minute dinner party of 8.
I picked up my fresh ingredients & the Barilla® Collezione Bucatini from Publix the last time I went grocery shopping & I’m thinking I may need to add the ingredients of this recipe to my grocery list again for next week.
I honestly don’t do a lot of meal planning, but I’m definitely planning on making this Lemon Garlic Pasta again really soon!
