When Its Just Too Hot To Think

The heat wave here in the Northeast is getting unbearable.  Even with my air conditioning full blast, it feels like 109 degrees.  It is hard to focus on doing much of anything much less cook.  I was wandering around the web and I found this refreshing, easy yet completely delicious recipe that I thought you might like to try.  It is a three-ingredient pasta and it’s the perfect thing to make when it is so hot you just cannot function.  Enjoy!!!!


Three – Ingredient Spaghetti

1 lb Spaghetti
kosher salt
juice and zest of 2 lemons
2 c parmesan cheese
freshly ground black pepper (optional)

In a large pot of salted boiling water, cook spaghetti according to package directions, until al dente. Reserve 1 cup of boiling water and drain.

Return spaghetti to pot and mix with lemon juice, zest, and parmesan.  Season with salt and pepper as desired.
