Now that school is back in session, my husband and I are busy cheering for our grandkids at their soccer games. We enjoy sports and supporting our grandkids and try to never miss a game. That means I need to plan my weekly dinner menus in advance. It would be easy to fall into a boring routine when it comes to preparing evening meals but I like to mix things up a bit. One way I elevate our midweek meals is by making Lemon Bucatini. I’ve fallen in love with Barilla® Collezione Artisan Collection, especially the bucatini.

How I Serve Lemon Bucatini

In case you don’t know, Barilla® Collezione is a premium pasta and features six artisanal pasta shapes. I’m impressed that Barilla® uses traditional Italian bronze plates for that homemade al dente texture that I love. It’s an added bonus that Barilla® Collezione pasta is made with non-GMO ingredients.

We enjoy citrus flavors at my house, especially lemon. The flavor combination of the lemon juice, olive oil, basil and lemon zest is light and refreshing and makes Lemon Bucatini a favorite with the family. Bucatini looks like spaghetti but has a hollow center, known as the buco or hole. It pairs well with the olive oil, lemon juice, and cheese in this recipe.

Sprinkle pasta with lemon zest and basil.

Helpful Hint: I use a handy lemon zester to quickly zest lemons. If you don’t have a zester, you can use a sharp knife or vegetable peeler. Remove only thin strips of the lemon peel and avoid the bitter, white pith.

I like to serve Lemon Bucatini with a spinach and arugula salad and a serving of fruit. It’s a light, flavorful meal that’s perfect for weeknights or when I’m having company over.
