Garlic lemon mostaccioli

You will need:

  • 1 can fire roasted tomatoes, diced (we used Muir Glen)
  • juice of one lemon
  • zest of one lemon
  • 5 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • olive oil
  • mostaccioli noodles, cooked

In a large pan, on medium heat, sauté garlic in about a tablespoon of olive oil. Heat for about 10 minutes to bring out the flavor, then add onions. After another 10 minutes, or when onions become translucent, add lemon zest & juice. Continue heating for yet another 10 minutes. Then add can of tomatoes. Turn heat to low and cook for an additional 30 minutes. Serve over prepared mostaccioli noodles, sprinkle with parmesan cheese.

*something to keep in mind: there is no hiding the lemon flavor in this recipe it is very strong. If you do not like a lemon-y flavor you should either skip the lemon all together, or use half of what the recipe calls for.
