Lemon Pasta

I am not usually a huge lemon flavored fan, it is usually a little too much for me. That being said, this is so wonderful. It is light (in flavor not calories!) and you can't stop eating it!

1 box Pasta (I either use bowtie or Rotini)
2-3 boiled chicken breasts
Couple leaves of fresh basil chopped
Grape tomatoes
sliced and cooked zucchini


Sauce:
1 clove of garlic minced ( or 1 tsp of the prechopped stuff)
1 Tbs olive oil
1 small thing of heavy whipping cream
1 Tbs butter
Juice from 1 lemon
1/4 c. shredded Parmesan
Lemon zest if wanted

So you cook all of the above ingredients and combine in a bowl. To cook the sauce, saute the garlic in the olive oil for a couple of minutes then add the heavy whipping cream, turn the heat to low because you don't want the whipping cream boiling (makes it sour). Add butter and Parmesan and lemon zest and let it get warm. You want the cheese and butter melted, but again don't let it boil. Then pour over the Pasta and other ingredients, then add a little more shredded Parmesan and salt and pepper to taste. Yummy!
