“Served with a fresh salad, I think this is a perfect summer weekday meal. It comes together very fast if you prepare all the ingredients beforehand. (note: typo in wine amount has been corrected - 1/4 cup, not 1 1/4 cup - yowza, that'd be a lot of wine!)”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook the pasta in several quarts of salted water (keep an eye on it - angel hair cooks a lot faster than other pasta and you don't want it mushy). Place it in a large serving bowl, add the basil and Parmesan cheese and toss to mix.
  2. While the pasta is cooking, heat the olive oil in a large skillet and saute the garlic for a minute or so until it *just* begins to change color. Add the wine and cook until it has been reduced by about half (2-4 minutes). Stir in the lemon juice and tomatoes and remove the sauce from heat until the pasta is ready.
  3. Pour lemon-tomato sauce over pasta mixture, add salt and pepper to taste and toss to mix. Serve with extra Parmesan on the side, if desired.
