This dish comes together in 20-25 minutes for those days you are short on cooking time.



Cook spaghetti according to package directions, drain.

Meanwhile, over medium-high heat, add oil to a large frying pan. When oil is hot, saute chicken and onions until chicken is browned and cooked through. Add cooked pasta and the peas, toss with chicken and onions. Add heavy cream and bring to a boil for 3-4 minutes until cream thickens and clings to chicken/pasta mixture. Remove from heat and top with Parmesan cheese.

This recipe is not only fast, easy, but flavorful! I love cooking with lemon. It is a great flavor enhancer! I find it is a great healthy choice! You use less salt, natural flavors. Lemon is fantastic on fresh vegetables too! You don't need butter if you use lemon! My favorite is broccoli with lemon!
