Baked Lemon Pasta

I don't know about you, but trying to get away without ANY meat for a main course is very difficult at my house. With that being said, the Baked Lemon Pasta would never go over just on its own here with these critics. Ever.

I made Baked Lemon Pasta in addition to our leftover Spaghetti and Meatballs from the other night. I also included some more of that yummy garlic cheese bread, and a big salad. No, it did not go together well, but we had company here to help get rid of the leftovers, and I thought I needed to try something new in addition.

As its name implies, this dish is very "lemony". And that is the whole point of Baked LEMON Pasta. So if lemon does not get you going, I would highly suggest skipping over this dish. If you are a lemon fan, I am guessing you will really like it. Do you feel like I am stating the obvious here?

Baked Lemon Pasta is in one word: tangy. You pair the fresh squeezed lemon with sour cream and parmesan cheese and it's going to be. I thought the dish could have been a bit creamier. Seemed kind of dry to me. But overall, I think it would be a great side to a nice piece of grilled white fish of any kind. Even maybe next to a chicken breast and salad. And of course your garlic cheese bread!

We did like the dish. Just not out there on its own. It is just kind of the epitomy of summer. Maybe I'm not ready for that yet...
