We are always divided between 'health' and 'taste' when it comes to food. Many of our favourite foods just cater to our taste buds, and when we look at healthy foods, they don't really appease us. Bringing the best of the two worlds together, we have the perfect recipe that comes with great taste and healthfulness at the same time. Pasta is something we all love. The best part about this food is that you can fashion it however you want to suit your taste preference. If you want a protein-rich meal, chicken pasta is the ideal recipe to pick. But if you want to go beyond the usual chicken pasta that you've had a million times already, try this unique and refreshing lemon chicken pasta.
Indian-style lemon chicken is one of our favourite dishes for main meal or snacks. Bringing its zesty flavor and protein content to the Italian delight of pasta, you get an irresistible meal that you just can't say no to. Pasta is nothing without a generous smattering of cheese, so you have that too in this recipe. Parmesan cheese goes best with this pasta but you can pick any cheese of your choice, even the healthy cottage cheese (paneer) but grated.
