Oprah's Lemon Zest Pasta

Again, I have converted the pasta to be gluten-free.  So you can still have Oprah's recipes minus the gluten.

**found in April 2012 Oprah Magazine

This recipe came from having nothing left in the house but a box of spaghetti and some lemons.  I grab whatever fresh herbs are available in my garden, about 2 handful's worth, total.  I usually serve the pasta with a nice piece of fish grilled on the panini press for a few minutes.

1 pound GF Spaghetti
1 1/2 cups basil leaves
1 tsp. lemon thyme leaves
1 tbsp. oregano leaves
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 tbsp. lemon juice
2 tbsp. butter spread-any gluten free kind will do (or Ghee=Clarified Butter)
1/2 tsp. truffle salt or kosher salt
1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Zest of 1 lemon

Bring a pot of water to a boil and cook pasta according to the package directions.  Blend the herbs, olive oil and lemon juice in a food processor.  when pasta is al dente, drain and toss with herb mixture, butter spread, truffle salt and black pepper.  Garnish with Parmesan cheese and lemon zest.

Enjoy!  xoxo Julie
