Delicious Simplicity

Photo Credit: I Nom Things
I have been wanting to do more recipe posts since I enjoy cooking when I have the time and the gas in my apartment is actually working (that's a whole different story).  Pinterest has given me motivation to try new meals since I love to pin dishes and recipes that I want to make.  Yesterday a friend and I were pinning away and we came upon this delicious image above.  When I clicked on the recipe (which can be found here) I saw that it was incredibly simple and would satisfy my 24/7 pasta craving.  The main ingredients include a garlic clove, olive oil, fresh basil, pine nuts, a lemon, Parmesan cheese, of course, pasta.  My boyfriend and I decided to also add grilled chicken to give the dish more protein. The total preparation took less than 25 minutes and the end result was delicious.  While I always remember to take pictures AFTER I have consumed half of the meal, I swear ours looked similar to the above image (with slightly more Parmesan cheese).  I promise to start taking pictures of my own in the future.  If you decide to try out this recipe, be sure to let me know what you think!
