This is not the normal tomato sauce spaghetti, but something sweeter, smoother, tastier, and change can be a great thing from the same old spaghetti recipe.

I’ve mentioned a time or two that I love lemon flavored just about anything. I love lemon cookies, and lemon brownies, I love hot honey lemon water, especially when cold, or sick.

This spaghetti is the perfect meal for an evening when you don’t want to cook a big meal but want it to look like you put some effort into it.

It takes no time or big effort to make, but makes spaghetti night a lot more special.
