Welcome! I am so happy you chose to gather around my table. My name is Mia Swinehart and I am a registered dietitian with a passion for simple healthy recipes, women's hormonal health, and overall wellness!
The easiest, most delicious lemon parmesan pasta you will ever make. I’m completely obsessed!
We make some variation of this pasta once week to be honest. It’s so simple and so satisfying, and goes so well with any pasta shape, veggies on hand, and protein of choice. We personally love it with asparagus, broccoli, or zucchini and shrimp or salmon. It’s light, fresh, and full of flavor.
Plus, you cannot beat how easy it is to make! It’s a 20 minute meal or less, and the perfect weeknight or Sunday meal.
I have not made this with any dairy free replacements, but let me know if you do! It’s always helpful to other readers 🙂
I keep this recipe as is, and I recommend it to get the best results! The only change I sometimes make is adding a splash of heavy cream after the wine if I have some on hand and want it extra creamy 🙂
I also always add extra black pepper. My favorite with pasta dishes like this one!!
I hope this lemon parmesan pasta becomes a new dinner staple for you guys like it is for us! I cannot get enough of it, and I know you’ll love it to!
If you scroll to the bottom of the recipe card, you can find some veggie and protein serving suggestions!

Cook your pasta according to the directions on the packaging.
Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add butter and olive oil, then slightly reduce heat and stir in garlic and cook for 30 seconds.
Add wine, salt, and pepper and allow to cook down for 4-5 minutes.
Turn heat down to low. Add your cooked and drained pasta to the pan, along with the lemon juice and parmesan. Stir until everything is well combined (I like to add some extra black pepper), and serve!
We like to serve this with zucchini, asparagus, peas, broccoli, and or spinach. I add the veggies in after the wine cooks down a bit with a small splash of veggie broth and some extra seasonings and allow to cook until veggies are cooked to your liking, then proceed with step 4.
This is also delicious with sautéd shrimp, chicken, or salmon!
So easy to make, yet so amazing! I just made it for dinner tonight and it was seriously so good. I added broccoli and sundried tomatoes 🙂
This was so good!!! Thanks for sharing! 🙂
Oh my gosh. Hands down one of the simplest and yummiest pasta dishes I’ve had in forever!! I made it with shrimp, broccoli, cauliflower, and asparagus and it was amazing!
This makes me sooo happy to hear!! Thank you so much Amber!!
Super easy recipe! I used shells. I added a few shakes of some red pepper flakes for a little ~spice~
Really tasty and simple as well!
So yummy! Would you possibly know the approximate calorie count for it? 🙂

This is by far one of the best pasta recipes ever. I am a huge pasta lover and I have been looking for an easy healthy pasta! It turns out perfectly every time. I use banza chickpea noodles and then add in broccoli, zucchini, and some spices. Amazing!
the BEST pasta i’ve ever eaten!! no joke this pasta sexy af???????? i used penne and i thought it was perfect for this. will definitely make again and experiment with
SO simple yet so delicious. added sauteed shallots zucchini mushrooms and cherry tomatoes. 10/10 recommend. All ur recipes always come out flawlessly. So happy I found you
Ah thank you SO much, Amanda! xo
This is so tasty! Not a heavy sauce, the white wine and lemon together cut through the Parmesan cheese perfectly. I just threw a couple of veggies that I had on hand in with the sauce before adding the noodles. Also it’s only like 5 ingredients that I already had on hand so that’s a major plus! My picky hubby even liked it! Highly recommend 🙂
Even my husband liked it, said it was one of the best pastas he had ever had.
thank you for the easy, successful weeknight dinner <3
Love hearing this, thank you so much Kierstin!!
