Lemon Garlic Herb Pasta with Grilled Chicken Recipe | Easy Pasta Recipe

Don’t feel like making dinner tonight?

This takes less than 30 minutes and is so easy you can basically do it with your eyes closed.

Well, maybe not closed, but you get what I’m saying. My lemon garlic herbed pasta is so rich with flavor, your family will think you spent forever prepping it.

A simple dressing with ingredients you already have on hand and pasta is really all you need! Add the chicken and the greens and you take it up another notch!

Even though I love cooking, I have many nights where I just don’t wanna move off the couch and making dinner seems overwhelming. When I have those days, I make this.

Not only is my lazy habits satisfied but so is my stomach.
