Lemon Parmesan Chicken Pasta

I found this recipe on the SparkPeople website. It looked so light yet delicious, I just had to make it! I modified it a bit to suit our taste.

Ingredients

* 1/2 lb. angel hair pasta
* 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breast, chopped into bite sized pieces (we just used one large chicken breast for the two of us)
* 2-3 cloves garlic, minced
* 2 tbsp butter
* 3 tbsp lemon juice (we used at least double this)
* 1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese (again, we doubled this)
* 1 cup reserved pasta water

Directions

1. Bring large pot of water to a boil.
2. Meanwhile, heat butter in large skillet. Saute chicken and garlic until cooked through.
3. Cook pasta according to package directions.
4. Add lemon juice and parmesan to chicken shortly before pasta is done.
5. Toss the cooked pasta with the chicken mixture.
6. Ladle in 1 cup of pasta water to extend the sauce.

This was so yummy! Will definitely be making it again :)
