Lemon Cream Pasta with Garlic Chicken


Lemon Cream Pasta with Garlic Chicken

I am not even sure where I found this recipe, but Lemon Cream Pasta with Garlic Chicken was so simple and yummy.  Cooking the noodles in chicken broth and lemon juice made the dish over the top.  Gives the pasta so much flavor and hardly and sauce is needed.  And lemon and garlic together is one of my favorite pairings ever.
