Pasta with Lemon and Garlic

Pat Duran


This pasta dish is good hot or cold.
Fast and easy and will hold up well in the fridge for at least a week- that is if it lasts that long. Your children will love it.
My family loves the salad hot - then any leftovers are usually eaten cold. It's really good ladies.
You can add any chopped up vegetables your family likes.
Add tuna or,cooked and chopped chicken,ground beef,pepperoni, bacon or luncheon meat, etc......
