Lemon Spaghetti

If you are looking for an easy, and inexpensive pasta dish... try Lemon Spaghetti.
This is from the Food Network and was prepared by Giada De Laurentiis.

2/3 c. OLIVE OIL
2/3 c. PARMESAN CHEESE, freshly grated
1/2 c. LEMON JUICE, freshly squeezed
SALT and freshly ground PEPPER
1/3 c. BASIL LEAVES, chopped

Cook the pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water until tender but still firm to the bite (about 8 minutes).

Meanwhile, whisk the oil, Parmesan, and lemon juice in a large bowl to blend.

Drain the pasta, reserving 1 cup of the cooking liquid.
Toss the pasta with the lemon sauce and the reserved cooking liquid, adding 1/4 c. at a time as needed to moisten.
Season with salt and pepper.
Garnish with lemon zest and chopped basil.

*If desired, serve with a salad, crusty Italian bread, and some grilled Italian sausage.
