Wine and lemon butter pasta


This may very well be the lightest pasta I’ve ever made. One night I was cooking and almost made a mac and cheese, but I decided I wanted something really light… so I wouldn’t eat so many noodles. Because you know if you have mac and cheese you are gonna eat the whole damn pan, amiright!
I like the tart, lemony taste of this pasta and the red pepper flakes give me the heat I always crave.

1 lb penne pasta
1/4 cup dry white wine
2 tbsp lemon juice

Red pepper flakes
