Simple lemon and basil spaghetti

This is a really easy dinner to throw together after a long day at work.

Serves One

What you’ll need:

  • 75g wholewheat spaghetti
  • Juice and rind of one lemon
  • 2 tbsp fresh basil, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • handful of breadcrumbs
  • Sprinkle of feta (optional)

What you’ll need to do:

  1. Cook the spaghetti as instructed on the packet and set aside.
  2. In a frying pan heat the olive oil and add the garlic, soften.
  3. When the garlic has softened add the breadcrumbs and combine so they soak up the oil and garlic flavours.
  4. Squeeze in the lemon juice and add the rind, heat for a further 5mins.
  5. Combine the spaghetti and the breadcrumb mixture.
  6. Stir in the chopped basil.
  7. Sprinkle the feta over the dish, if using.
