What an easy dish to make!! Followed this recipe closely but didn't use as much fresh lemon juice. Served this hot for a supper dish then had it cold the next day. Yummy. Thanks for posting, KM !!!

It was very good, though a bit salty. Next time I'll cut back on the olive oil.

I made this dish after coming back from holiday. I had hardly anything in the house except the ingredients for this dish, and I didn't expect to be able to make something so tasty from them! For one person, I used the juice of a lemon and a tablespoon of olive oil and it was perfect. The only thing I'd do differently next time is put the basil leaves on top as a garnish, since they wilted and lost their colour when I mixed them in with the hot pasta. I think this would also be good with feta cheese, instead of olives.

Deliciously light! Made this for breakfast/lunch in just over 10 minutes. Made a full recipe of lemon juice and olive oil, boiled pasta for one serving, added cheese, basil and olives for one and used just enough dressing for one. Now I've got dressing already made for a salad tonight or this pasta again in a few days. Love it.

We really enjoyed this dish. Quick and easy to make too! Since I only had one lemon on hand, I used it and cut back the olive oil to about a tablespoon. I love it when I find a dish where I can use fresh herbs from my garden, and the fresh basil was perfect! Thank you for a great tasting dish, KitchenManiac!! :-)

Easy, lighter-tasting recipe because of the lemon. Fabulous to add whatever's-on-hand. I used fresh tomatos for color and added a left-over grilled chicken breast sliced thinly. It was a big hit!

A nice lite pasta dish. I added some Kraft Sun-Dried Tomato salad dressing for a little tomato flavor. Thanks for the recipe!
