What can I say about this simple linguine. It tasted simple, refreshing, fulfilling and healthy. I love the lemon zest flavour. Remember not to squeeze too much lemon because those lemon could taste really sour. My another suggestion isĀ  to add a small can of tuna. They could add much flavour and fill you up.
