Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook the bow-tie pasta at a boil, stirring occasionally, until cooked through yet firm to the bite, about 12 minutes; drain.
  2. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir chicken broth, lemon juice, oregano, basil, and garlic into the butter. Bring to a simmer and reduce heat to medium-low; cook until thickened to your desired texture, 5 to 7 minutes
  3. Season sauce with salt and pepper. Stir cooked pasta into the butter sauce to coat.

A fresh, light and delicately flavored pasta dish. I used fresh herbs (parsley, basil and green onion) and I do think that makes a world of difference. Loved it.

The lemon flavor was spot on, but the herbs were lacking. This well could be a matter of personal taste preference, but I increased the garlic and would "at least" double the oregano and basil the next time. I added some shrimp and marinated artichoke hearts for a nice dinner this evening. Thanks, Beth, we enjoyed your recipe.
