Last Minute Pasta Dinner
Last Minute Pasta Dinner with bow tie pasta, freshly squeezed lemon juice, garlic, basil, parmesan cheese, olive oil and beans. Let’s face it. We all need a few great recipes that take under 20 minutes to prepare for busy weeknights.
April brings another recipe swap from Recipe Swap Club and I was tasked with my friends from Fizl Dizl. I had a long list of recipes I wanted to recreate but decided on the Last Minute Pasta Dinner because it is sport season and all you parents out there need some quick recipe inspiration. Make sure to check out Weekly Meal Plans from Fizl Dizl for more great recipe ideas!
I made this recipe twice in the last couple weeks because it’s that good and that easy. The first time I made it, I used thin spaghetti pasta with chickpeas. Second time around, I used bow tie pasta with Cannellini beans. For round three, I am going to go for bow tie pasta with chickpeas. You can really use whatever pasta you have on hand with any type of bean. I liked the chickpeas because they are hardy and easy to cook with.
Fizl Dizl also makes a Power Protein Frosty that I am dying to try over the summer.
To make last Minute Pasta Dinner, you need a pot, pan, cutting board, knife, garlic press, and strainer. Oh, and maybe a can opener for the beans. Cook your pasta of choice according to box directions. While the pasta cooks, steam your broccoli and set to the side. Drench your pan in olive oil, add the garlic, squeeze the lemon and add the beans. Once the pasta is strained, combine everything together. One change I made to the original recipe is that I added 1 cup of parmesan cheese into the mixture.
