I suspect you have a pretty good idea what a plate of linguine looks like. No, no red sauce, just the pasta. In your mind’s eye throw on top some breadcrumbs and olive oil. Got the picture? Good, now I don’t feel bad about not having a picture for you!

Not much to say here except that this is yummy. I’ll be honest, I wasn’t expecting much. I mean, how likely is it that a low-fat cheesy pasta is actually going to taste good? But, it was, in fact Adam and I were vying for the leftovers the next night!
I. Love. This. Pasta. I’m almost tempted to leave this post at that, but that wouldn’t be enough to tell you about it’s lightness, the brightness of the lemon, how quick and easy it is to make.
You know how some recipes evolve every time you make them? Well, this one evolved over the course of one single preparation.
