Weight Loss Tips

  • Lemon normalizes metabolism, breaks down fats, removes toxins from the body, improves immunity, and also reduces hunger.

  • Cook the pasta in boiling salted water for 2 minutes less than indicated on the package.

  • You can leave out the pine nuts and thyme, but the pasta will get a more savory and rich flavor with these ingredients.
