Linguini Margarita

Sunday, April 5, 2015

I love making up pasta recipes, even more I love eating pasta. This dish is light, zesty and perfect for this warm spring weather. I try to keep my recipes simple with fresh ingredients, this dish is that to a tee. This recipe might be one of my personal favorites because of  the raw fresh garlic. Garlic contains a compound called Allicin which has potent medical properties, such as boosting the immune system. 


1 package of brown rice or plain linguine 
3 fresh organic Roma tomatoes, seeded and diced
6 cloves of fresh garlic, chopped
1/4 cup of olive oil
2 lemons, juiced
Zest from one lemon
1 tablespoon of agave   
1 large bunch of fresh basil, chopped
Fresh ground pepper


Prepare your tomatoes, garlic, and basil. Cook your pasta and in a large bowl add your chopped garlic to the warm pasta. In a separate smaller bowl add your olive oil, lemon juice and lemon zest. Whisk the lemon mixture until it emulsifies. Add this mixture to your pasta and toss. Then add your chopped tomatoes and fresh basil. When serving add a generous amount of ground pepper. 

Enjoy and remember to always be mindful and eat with compassion!
