A plate of lemon cream basil pasta with chicken.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!
