Mealthy Tip

When Parmesan cheese is the star of the dish, make sure to use the best. Opt for Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and freshly grate it at home for the best flavor. Use a cheese grater or a microplane for best grating results. The microplane produces a really nice delicate strand, making the cheese melt right in to the pasta. Experiment with different types of spaghetti, such as a thin angel hair or thick bucatini.

This is everything. Gone are my days of noodles with butter (okay, not gone, but not as often now that I have THIS recipe in my arsenal) -- lemon juice, olive oil, and mint are here to stay! Love the light flavors. No shade intended towards spaghetti, but I love this with linguine!

This lemon and mint spaghetti is healthy, light, and delicious. We grow fresh mint in our yard so it was a nice way use something fresh from our garden.

I followed this recipe exactly, but it just felt like it was missing something. I decided to add ground sausage. Next time I may even stir in sautéed spinach.

Used Parmigiano Reggiano, freshly grated. Very fragrant, rich, and decadent. Also, I used closer to one full cup of cheese. Mint definitely optional.

Parmigiano Reggiano was definitely the star of this dish. I thought it was a little dry so tossed in some more oil. I also had to add some grilled chicken to it in order for my boys to eat it.
