Primavera Sauce

So I figure I need to do my best to lose at least 5 lbs before Christmas as I am certainly gonna gain them back.  I enjoy this recipe so much and reminds me of the good old days when I worked at East Side Mario’s.  I serve this with steamed vegetables over either angel hair pasta or fusilli pasta (my kiddos favorite).  Veggie ideas we love too are snow peas, broccoli, jullienne carrots and red peppers.  Hope you enjoy!

Ingredients

1/4 c extra virgin olive oil
2 T garlic, chopped
1/2 c chicken stock
4 T fresh basil, jullienne cut
2 1/2 oz. fresh parmesan cheese, grated
2 tsp. lemon zest

Directions:

Heat oil in pan

add garlic and saute

Take off heat and add chicken stock, basil, parmesan cheese and lemon zest.

Let rest until ready to serve.  Toss into 1 1/2 lbs of  cooked pasta and veggies.

Enjoy!
