Lemon Butter Pasta with Mushrooms and Tomatoes recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

Fragrant garlic, mushrooms, onions and tomatoes are sauteed in butter and then tossed with fresh lemon juice and tender pasta. I’ve been making this pasta for company, for myself, for family and friends for so many years now. This is the first thing I think of when I want pasta.

My husband prefers this dish with some grilled chicken tossed in with the pasta, but I’m quite happy with the pasta alone. I’ve been known to make this dish just for myself on weekends when Sean was out of town. I’d happily eat it for lunch and dinner all weekend.

    What a great simple but flavorful pasta dish. I like that it can easy be a meatless meal, but would also taste great with some grilled chicken on top (great for families with different types of eaters.)
