Lemon-Garlic Pasta, from Kris

Lemon-Garlic Pasta

- 1 package spaghetti pasta
- 7 cloves garlic minced
- 2 TBSP butter
- 1 TBSP olive oil
1/3 cup fresh lemon juice (or thereabouts)

Cook pasta according to package directions, add 1/2 of the minced garlic to the pasta cooking water to enhance garlic flavor. Drain pasta, set aside. In pasta pan, melt butter and olive oil together over medium heat. Add minced garlic, allow to cook (but not burn!) for about 1 - 2 minutes to extract garlic flavor into oil. Add pasta back into pan, add lemon juice, salt and pepper. Toss well. I like to also add parmesan cheese and sometimes some fresh dill to the pasta as well.
