This is a pasta that I think is totally wonderful.  It has lots of parsley, garlic, and lemon.  It’s deliciously fresh and satisfying .  It’s best as written, but if you’re watching your calories, you can use part of the butter, omitting the olive oil , and add 1/2 to 3/4 cup pasta water.  Try it first in it’s original form then branch out as you wish.
