This quick and easy Lemon Spaghetti has a tasty, herby light taste that’s perfect for Spring dinners! Plus it’s quick (made under 30 minutes)! Lemon Basil Spaghetti Hey guys! I’m still in a bit of a babymoon slash walking-zombie-tired-daze since I had my sweet baby {eureka! he came out!!}, but wanted to post a quick and easy {and really really delicious} dinner recipe for you. I’ve posted a lemon pasta recipe before with lots of veggies, but this time I made it more Blake friendly….read: less green things. I also didn’t have everything I needed on hand for that recipe, so this one is a bit of a stretch/variation. It’s not too lemony, creamy with not a lot of calories {thanks to some evaporated milk} and ready in about 20 minutes. Winning! Lemon Basil Spaghetti With spring *hopefully* around the corner, this recipe will definitely book in the new season nicely 🙂 Lemon Basil Spaghetti Lemon Basil Spaghetti

See you on Friday with another recipe….and maybe more baby pictures. Because I can’t handle how cute Eddie is. Printable recipe below. Enjoy, friends!! xoxo
