For this recipe I combine the ease of a Trader Joe’s ingredient with the natural abundance of Meyer lemons that I reap from my garden.  I enjoy sipping a crisp white wine to accompany it. 

1 8-oz. package Trader Joe’s lemon pepper pappardelle pasta
          Boil for 10 minutes as per package instructions.  Drain. 

1 Meyer lemon, zest and juice
3 Tbl. olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
          Toss with pasta.  Place in serving bowl. 

1/3 cup toasted pine nuts
Parmesan cheese, grated (optional)
1 Tbl. parsley, chopped, for color (optional)
          Sprinkle over as garnish.
