Perfect Summer Recipes With ReaLemon Flavour Infusions – Garlic (Win!)

August 31, 2020

Summer isn’t over yet, and we’re still on the hunt for fresh and easy recipes since that require less prep time inside, giving us more time to get out of the kitchen and enjoy the sun! To the rescue: Canada’s number 1 lemon and lime juice brand, ReaLemon, which recently introduced its latest launch, ReaLemon Flavour Infusions – Garlic (at select retailers in a 240 mL bottle format for the MSRP of $1.89). It’s got the citrusy zing of the classic ReaLemon we all know and love with a hint of garlic—and a whole lot of flavour! Best of all, ReaLemon Flavour Infusions – Garlic gives your favourite dressings, marinades, appetizers and entrees a boost of refreshing flavour, while removing the hassle of adding both lemon flavour and garlic to your dishes. Try the ReaLemon recipe for a summer-perfect pasta with asparagus and lemon mascarpone sauce below, and get more recipes and info here. Enjoy! —Vita Daily

ReaLemonGarlic Pasta with Asparagus and Lemon Mascarpone Sauce

This elegant pasta dinner comes together in 10 minutes and has a bright lemony flavour.

1/2 bunch (300 g) asparagus, woody stems trimmed
12 oz (380 g) spaghettini noodles
1 cup (250 mL) mascarpone cheese
1/4 cup (50 mL) ReaLemon Flavour Infusions – Garlic
2/3 cup (150 mL) grated Parmesan cheese (plus extra for serving)
1/3 cup (75 mL) very thinly sliced, oil packed sun-dried tomatoes
1/4 cup (50 mL) each chopped basil and parsley
1/2 tsp (2 mL) each salt and freshly ground black pepper

Slice asparagus spears in half crosswise then again lengthwise (or thirds if very thick). Cook spaghettini in a large pot of boiling, well-salted water according to package timing. Add asparagus during the last 3 minutes of cooking. Measure out 1-1/2 cups (375 mL) of the cooking water before draining pasta. Return drained pasta and asparagus to pot. Add mascarpone, ReaLemon Flavour Infusions – Garlic, and 1 cup (250 mL) reserved cooking water; tossing until pasta is well coated. Add Parmesan, sun-dried tomatoes, basil, parsley, salt and pepper; tossing to combine. (Adjust consistency with additional pasta water as needed.) Serve immediately, with extra cheese at the table. Makes 6 servings. Tip: Use any pasta cut you prefer.
