Summer “Thyme” – Easy Herb Cooking

With summer upon us, it’s time to plant that herb garden. Or just a couple of pots on the back step will provide plenty of enjoyment all season. Simply adding a few fresh herbs transforms an ordinary dish into something special. For example, this easy pasta side dish is a tasty accompaniment to grilled chicken or fish. Combining the flavor of fresh lemon and fresh basil is quite delicious.

Simply Pasta with Lemon & Basil

(Makes 4 side dish servings)

1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
3 tablespoons lemon juice
Salt & pepper to taste
3 cups cooked spaghetti
1 1/2 teaspoons lemon zest
1-2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil

In large bowl, whisk oil, cheese, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Add spaghetti, zest and fresh basil and toss.

We’ve got plenty more healthy recipes that are just as delicious and easy to prepare, such as Summertime Potato and Green Bean Salad, Grilled Chicken with Fresh Tomatoes and Thyme, Sautéed Bay Scallops with Lemon and Thyme, Orzo Summer Salad, Tarragon Chicken Salad in Cantaloupe Boat, Fresh Strawberries Italian Style.

I just got some basil; hope it survives to flavor recipes like this one.

My basil is going strong right now -- we've had a good amount of rain, so it's getting plenty of water. Usually, I forget to water it..... :-D
