It’s a good thing I did sort-of step-by-step photos for this one, because these photos are from a while ago and I don’t even remember eating this! Let’s see…

Ruffles pasta (I LOVE that shape) and asparagus, washed and “snapped.”

Looks like I’m boiling some water and also sauteing some mushrooms. I bet it smelled really good in the kitchen!

I was so clever, using the kitchen scissors to cut up the asparagus right over the pan!

Yummy! I love when the mushrooms start to get a little brown like that.

Then a generous sprinkling of lemon pepper (which also has salt in it, so go easy on the salt if you need to add more).

And a splash of lemon juice.

And look! The pasta is done at the same time!

Mix it all up and serve it (and I’m sure I tossed everything with a little EVOO too, because that’s just tasty, and probably added more lemon pepper).

Simple flavors that go YUM in your mouth.

Thanks Emily! I’ll have to give McCormick a try. Same here about the lemony, kind of the reason I was thinking of mixing my own. I am guessing it’s just lemon zest a ground peppercorns. Maybe a side project for avoiding whole lemon waste.

Thanks Vicki! I hope you enjoy any that you try. :) Let me know how they turn out for you.

Doug, I just buy it… I like the ones that are more lemony than peppery though, so I buy the ones with lots of yellow. haha. I think McCormick is a pretty good brand.

Did you make or buy the lemon pepper seasoning? I’ve been thinking of making my own and was curious whether you had.
