Lemon Vegetable Pasta

Hey everyone!

I know it’s been awhile. We are actually in the process of moving to a bigger apartment right now- in 8 days! And I have nothing packed. I’m trying to balance school, being a good mom to Calv, keeping the house tidy, making quick and healthy meals for us, and being pregnant with twins while trying to prepare for them as well. I feel like I’m doing a solid 7 on all of those so, not bad?

Also if any twin moms can tell me how to sleep that would be great. I’m only 24 weeks and can’t sleep anymore! My back! Oh have I got a long way to go..

That’s why I’ve been a bit MIA and I probably will still be busy for quite awhile! But I’m always checking my instagram, replying to all the kind comments, and posting at least monthly.

I made this meal about two months ago actually. Calvin came down with a virus and Croup and I was sick as well with morning sickness and whatever virus Calvin had. We actually had to make an E.R. trip for Calv too. It was a miserable week. Thankfully, I had Ceth, my amazing husband, who stayed home from work to completely take care of us. Then, it hit him. So we were all down.  That Sunday I wanted REAL FOOD though. Not take out. We didn’t have anything in the house though! I was craving fresh food.

So I quickly made some homemade noodles, put a lemon vinaigrette on it and put in a lot of fresh vegetables. It was exactly what we needed and it was so delicious.

Lemon Vegetable Pasta

  • 1 lb pasta (I made my Homemade Pasta) (Reserve 1 cup of cooking liquid for sauce below)
  • Cucumber
  • 1 tomato
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 1 Orange Bell pepper

For the sauce: (Same sauce as my Lemon & Shrimp Fettucinne)

  • 2/3 cup Parmesan
  • 1/2 cup Lemon juice
  • 1 cup of cooking liquid from boiling pasta (You will most likely not be using all of this, see directions.)
  • 2/3 cup of Olive oil
  • Basil, Salt, and Pepper
  1. Cook pasta until tender. Drain.
  2. Whisk oil, Parmesan, and Lemon juice into the pasta along with your seasoning. If it is too dry, add your 1 cup of reserved liquid from boiling the pasta a little bit at a time until it is at the desired amount.
  3. Add in diced vegetables. (I sauteed my bell peppers- it’s up to you.)

It is a refreshing Spring meal that I’m sure you’ll love. Enjoy!
