This month’s Lazy Susan challenge was to make a delicious Vegetarian dish, using locally grown produce.  So I thought, what’s more local than super-fresh lemons from your own backyard?  This recipe for Lemon Pasta is a favorite for many reasons: it’s a one-pot meal, it’s nice and light and anyone can make it – you only need to know how to boil water!

This One-Pot Lemon Pasta serves as a great accompaniment to grilled veggies, a little fresh fish or with chicken picatta.  It is versatile and always a crowd-pleaser.


  • 9 oz linguine pasta (I prefer homemade or store-bought fresh)
  • 1/4 extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup white wine (see this post for one of my favorite tips on cooking with wine)
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan Cheese
  • 1 tb lemon zest
  • 1/2 cup fresh Italian Parsley, chopped
  • 1/2 cup sweet onion, diced
  • salt to taste


  1. Boil a large pot of water and prepare pasta according to package directions. Drain pasta and transfer back to pot.
  2. Combine all ingredients, tossing to coat pasta evenly.  Serve immediately.
  3. Sit back and enjoy.  That’s it!
