Lemony Garlic And White Wine Spaghetti

Words I love to see in a recipe: garlic, lemon, butter, wine, pasta.

Make this vegan lemony garlic and white wine spaghetti in the time it takes to boil some noods and have a glass of wine. Seriously, it takes 15 minutes. You’ll need lots of garlic, a lemon, crushed red pepper, vegan butter, white wine, vegan parmesan, herbs, and some noodles (don’t pour out the pasta water).

If you like lemon and garlic, this one’s for you. If you’re not a mega fan like me, then feel free to scale back on the amount of lemon juice and cloves of garlic.

Cooking tips for this recipe:

  • Prepare ingredients in advance. This pasta comes together very quickly, so I find it easiest to have everything ready before I start.
  • Make sure to salt your pasta water! It adds so much more flavor to the noodles.
  • Cook your pasta al dente. You’ll be adding the noodles to the sauce while it’s still hot, so you don’t want it to overcook.

Serving ideas:

  • Prepare a simple green salad with seasonal veggies and a lemony dressing.
  • Pour a glass of wine and call it a day!
