It could’ve been any type of pasta but that’s what I have at the moment. Works for me, though! I like the thickness of the campanelle which gives it a meaty texture. The ridges are good for holding thick sauces, actually. But I wanted something simple right now, so no sauces this time.
I had some leftover fresh mozzarella so I diced it up and added it but you really don’t need it. Just some grated parmesan and you’re good to go.
So easy to make, too. Ready in 15 minutes.
Ingredients (2 servings):
1/2 lb. Campanelle Pasta
1-2 Garlic Cloves, minced
A handful of Parsley (or Cilantro), chopped
1 Lemon, cut into 4 wedges
Fresh Cracked Pepper
Cook pasta to al dente. Meanwhile, in a medium-low heated large pan, sweat garlic in EVOO for a few minutes until fragrant but not browned. Add cooked pasta, chopped parsley and fresh cracked pepper. Toss well. Squirt some lemon juice and serve on pasta bowls. Garnish with grated parmesan, a lemon wedge and a drizzle of fresh olive oil.
