Lemon-Pepper Linguini Pasta

                   Me and my husband are big lovers of Italian food, especially Pasta. While we love having our Pasta with different types of sauces like the one we saw previously, today we decided on trying out pasta with sauteed vegetables and some exciting flavors. The lemon zest adds a nice citric and refreshing flavor to it, and the spice complements it nicely. So let's embark on this flavorful journey

  • 1 pkt Linguini Pasta
  • 1 cup sliced Onions
  • 1 cup sliced Color Peppers
  • 2-3 crushed Garlic cloves
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil/Butter
  • 1 tbsp Lemon Zest
  • 1 tbsp Black Pepper
  • 1 tsp Red Pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp Cumin seeds
  • 0.5 tsp Parsley leaves
  • Salt to taste
  • Cook the Linguini pasta as per the package instructions
  • Drain and keep it aside
  • Heat the olive oil in a pan. Add cumin seeds to it.
  • Once the cumin seeds start to crackle, add garlic to it and saute it for a minute
  • Now add the onions to it. Add some salt to it and saute it till it turns translucent
  • Then add peppers and saute it for 1-2 minutes.
  • Now add the black pepper, red pepper flakes, parsley leaves and lemon zest  and mix it well
  • Now stir in the cooked Linguini and cook it for 2 minutes or until well coated
  • Serve hot and enjoy
