I got a late start to my run after work and wasn’t home and showered until almost 7:30 pm. But we had a perfect, quick dinner planned. In fact, all the prep work for Lemon Basil Bowties can be completed before the pasta water even boils.
Mike doesn’t even like cottage cheese and he likes this recipe. Tonight we also added the juice from the two lemons. The final dish is a perfect balance of creamy from the cottage cheese, sweet from the basil, tangy from the lemon and toasty nuttiness from the pine nuts.
