Lemon Creme Fraiche Pasta

You just got home from work. You’re starving. You’re on the phone with you mom and need to multitask dinner. This recipe is your answer!

Lemon Creme Fraiche Pasta
1 cup or so of pasta (I used shells)
1/2 cup creme fraiche
1 lemon
Pinch of salt (I used garlic sea salt)
Handful of Kalamata olives
Handful of cherry tomatoes (mine were fresh from the garden)
Handful of basil
1/2 cup or so Asiago

1. Boil water for pasta. Throw in a dash of salt. Add pasta when water boils. Cook as long as package directs. Mine took ten minutes.

2. While pasta is cooking, squeeze lemon into a bowl. Stir in creme fraiche. Add a pinch of salt. Can you imagine an easier sauce?!

3. Prepare mix-ins: slice tomatoes in half, chop olives, chop basil, grate cheese.

4. Drain water from pasta. Add pasta to lemon sauce and toss well. Add mix-ins. Voila! You’ve made dinner while on the phone with mom. 🙂

Guten Appetit!
