Healthy One Pan Dinners: One-Pot Lemony Caprese Linguine

One-Pot Lemony Caprese Linguine from my new cookbook – Healthy One Pan DinnersYou won’t believe this recipe until you try it for yourself. A one-and-done pasta dish with all the fresh flavors of summer. It’s a little-known fact that fresh mozzarella adds plenty of protein. Linguine fini is a thinner cut of linguine. You can also use regular linguine or spaghetti, but you will need to adjust the cook time according to package directions.

One-Pot Lemony Caprese Linguine

12 ounces linguine fini
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 tsp kosher salt
½ lemon sliced
2 cloves garlic, sliced
1 medium tomato, diced
1 cup basil leaves, chopped
½ cup grated Parmesan cheese
6 ounces fresh mozzarella, diced
Red pepper flakes to serve, optional

Place pasta, olive oil, salt, lemon and garlic in a large (5 ½ to 7 ¼-quart) Dutch oven, cover with 4 ¼ cups of water.
Bring water to a boil over medium-high heat. As soon as the pasta beings to soften, stir frequently for 8 to 10 minutes until the pasta is al dente and the liquid is absorbed.
Top with tomato, basil, Parmesan and mozzarella. Serve immediately with red pepper flakes, if desired
