Creamy Lemon Black Pepper Pasta

Some days you just really need a simple dinner that feels good and that’s exactly why I created this Creamy Lemon Black Pepper Pasta. It truly is one of those simple twenty minute meals that you can make in the time it takes the water to boil and the pasta to cook. While I know I can easily eat this as a meal alone, it also is fantastic with sausage or chicken and asparagus.

Prep Time: 5 minutes Cook Time: 15 minutes Total Time: 20 minutes


3 tbsp Butter

1 garlic clove

1 tsp Black Pepper

Juice of half a Lemon

1 cup parmesan cheese

½ cup pasta water

  1. Bring a pot of water to boil and cook pasta according to box directions.

  2. While the pasta is cooking, melt the butter and toast the garlic and black pepper.

  3. Add the lemon juice and half of the parmesan cheese.

  4. When the pasta is done, take half a cup of the pasta water and add it to the sauce.

  5. Drain the pasta and add to the pan, topping with the rest of the parmesan.

  6. Stir until creamy, adding more cheese as desired.

*Personally, I like using Banza’s pastas for their extra protein and fiber and I find it doesnt fall apart easily.
