Rosemary and Lemon Pasta

Rosemary and Lemon Pasta

A simple no fuss, tasty pasta that can be made quickly at the end of a busy day – bless pasta, it is my fall back food when things get crazy! It is Fresh and Fast.

This lemon and rosemary pasta is made from ingredients that I always have on hand, in the pantry and my garden. The lemon juice keeps the pasta moist and gives the dish a fresh flavor boost.


  • Dried pasta – for 2 adults, 2 children
  • 1 and 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 fresh garlic cloves – chopped finely
  • 5 anchovy fillets – chopped finely
  • zest (chopped) and the juice of one lemon
  • 4 large sprigs of fresh rosemary – chopped
  • 1 tablespoon of walnuts – chopped
  • pepper to season (if desired)
  • 70 grams of feta – crumbled to serve


  1. Set a saucepan of water to boil and cook the pasta as per packet instructions
  2. A couple of minutes before the pasta is cooked – To a warm pan add the oil and garlic and stir until fragrant
  3. Add the anchovies, rosemary and lemon zest and stir to prevent sticking to the base of the pan
  4. When the pasta is just cooked drain it and add it to the pan with the garlic and other the ingredients
  5. Add the lemon juice, walnuts, and pepper and stir to coat
  6. Remove from heat and serve topped with crumbled pieces of feta

Hints and Tips:

  • Add a salad as a side dish if desired.
  • If you are not an anchovy fan leave them out

Do you have a super quick pasta dish you love to make at the end of a crazy day?  I would love to hear what your chosen flavor combination on these days is.

Have a great weekend.
