Finally, a pasta dinner that’s filling and satisfying, but not so heavy you’ll regret cleaning your plate. This recipe is sure to become a family favorite, and, lucky you, the all-in-one entrée’s a snap to throw together. Coarsely chopped dill and a light lemon-juice sauce bring a hint of freshness to the dish, while crumbled Feta adds a salty, creamy note. Try whole-wheat spaghetti, or other pasta noodles, such as angel hair, too. It’s like a Mediterranean-inspired shrimp scampi (minus the creamy, calorie-laden sauce) that evokes coastal Greece and lands on your dining table in under 30 minutes. Yes, please.
