Lemon Spinach Pasta with Sun Dried Tomatoes

Easy Lemon Spinach Pasta with Sun Dried Tomatoes from

Just because it’s unofficially summer doesn’t mean pasta is off the menu. Nope, it just means instead of heavier comforting pastas like Crock Pot Bolognese, I’m reaching for light pasta dishes like this Lemon Spinach Pasta with Sun Dried Tomatoes.

This is one of those perfect pasta dishes that feels fancy but is really not. Though, you could always fancy it up more for a date night at home on the patio and add some grilled shrimp to the mix or serve it for company with these Puff Pastry Caprese Cups as your appetizers. But as is with just the veggies and the light lemon white wine sauce, it is perfect. Summer on a plate with its fresh lemon flavors and bites of sweetness from the sun dried tomatoes.

And this is big for me. I like feeling fancy when I am so not fancy. Seriously, I am probably the least fancy person in the world. Have I told you about my obsession with my pajamas? It’s bad. So bad. Other women like cute clothes and shoes and handbags.

I love pajamas. It’s who I am. I own it. And speaking of owning it, I have more than 2 full drawers full of pjs. Which is more than any other article of clothing I have.

However, I can honestly say I am excited for summer when I can wear sundresses. Why? Because sundresses are basically socially acceptable night shirts. For 3 months out of the year its totally fine for me to go out of the house feeling like I am in my jammies without wearing them or yoga pants. Or pants in general. Because pants in general unless they are pajama pants are just not my jam.

  1. […] fruit and lemon, it’s fresh and perfect for summer. It would also make a great addition to my lemon pasta with spinach and sun dried tomatoes. The red wine I served from Saget la Perrière was a cabernet called Marie de Beauregard Chinon […]

    This absolutely looks delicious and yet so simple to make. I typically find pasta too heavy for the Summer months so this is a great option. Great and tempting pictures.

      You could totally do this with zoodles too if you don’t want actual pasta this time of year.
