Lemon Garlic Pasta

serves 4

1 red bell pepper

1 zucchini

(optional) 1 chicken breast marinated in Italian dressing (we like Good Seasons)

 4-5 garlic cloves

olive oil

1/2 cup grated Parmesan

1 lemon

8 oz cooked pasta (we like whole wheat thin spaghetti, but use whatever you like)

 

Slice the red pepper and zucchini in half, longways, and take the seeds out of the pepper. Grill the vegetables until tender and a little blackened. Grill chicken (if using) until cooked through. Chop vegetables (and chicken)  and set aside.

 

Mince the garlic cloves. Saute the garlic cloves in a couple of Tbsp of olive oil until beginning to lightly brown. Add in the vegetables (and chicken, if desired) and saute another minute. Throw in pasta and parmesan and toss to coat.

 

Place in serving bowl and squeeze half of the lemon on top. Cut the other half of the lemon into wedges.

Serve hot with parmesan and a lemon wedge for garnish.
