I don’t know about you, but when the weather starts heating up I would do almost anything to avoid having to actually cook! I want foods that are fresh and easy and can come together in less than 30 minutes.

Luckily this yummy Lemon and Sage Pasta is the perfect solution to my lazy summer cooking style. Not only is it absolutely delicious, it requires simple fresh ingredients. It is perfectly yummy all by itself, but it is also great served with grilled chicken, steak or shrimp for an effortless meal your whole family will love!

Assemble your ingredients: olive oil, butter, carrots, green onions, broccoli, fresh sage, bow tie pasta, lemon, salt, pepper, Parmesan cheese.
