Whole-Wheat Spaghetti with Garlic, Parsley, and Lemon is a simple and easy main dish to make. This pasta dish also packs a powerful punch thanks to the lemon zest that has a much stronger flavor than the fruit’s juice.

Lemon zest used in this recipe has a much stronger flavor than the fruit’s juice, so though this dish is simple and easy to make, it packs a delicious punch.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cook the pasta according to the label until al dente. Reserve 3 TBSP cooking liquid; drain.

Step 2

Meanwhile, heat 2 TBSP oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Reduce the heat to low, add the garlic, and cook, stirring frequently, until golden brown and fragrant (3-4 minutes). Stir in the parsley, pepper, and lemon zest. Cook, stirring often, until the parsley is tender (3-4 minutes).

Step 3

Add the pasta and cooking liquid to the skillet with the salt and remaining TBSP oil. Toss until well mixed. Top with the cheese and serve.
