- quick recipe of the week -

Hey folks, and happy Monday to you all! Today I am featuring a recipe that I found on none other than the beloved Pinterest. I haven't even tried it out myself yet, so we can all try it out together this week and report back if it was good or not! :-)

Linguine with Garlicky Bread Crumbs
pinned from "famfriendsfood", original recipe by Cooking Light

1 cup bread crumbs
2 TB olive oil, divided
6 garlic cloves, minced
8 ounces uncooked linguine

Stir in breadcrumbs, and cook 6 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring frequently. Cook pasta according to package directions,drain. Place pasta in a large bowl. Add 1 1/2 teaspoons oil, breadcrumbs, parsley, lemon juice, salt, and black pepper; toss gently to combine. Serve immediately.

It looks good, and it's much healthier than using a heavy cream sauce. A nice and light pasta recipe for this warmer weather! Enjoy! I'll let you know how my version turns out this week!
