Caramelized Lemon Pasta with Asparagus and Halloumi

Caramelized Lemon Pasta with Asparagus and Halloumi

Simple fresh foods come together to make a delicious, comforting dinner.

I made this dinner for myself the other night while Macky was attending a dinner in Boston. I was amazed how quickly it came together and how easy it was to make a single serving without lots of leftovers. Despite the carbs and cheese, the dish feels light and refreshing thanks to the caramelized lemon and fresh asparagus. What is caramelized lemon you're asking yourself? And halloumi...do you all know what that is?

Let's start with halloumi. Halloumi is a salty, firm, white cheese that has a high melting point. That means you can fry it and it will keep its shape and become just a touch gooey inside. Fair warning, once you try it, you will become obsessed. 

Now about those caramelized lemons. When you cook a lemon half in olive oil, the juices get nice and caramelized with browned cut edges. The flavor remains tart yet more complex than its raw form. It's a really easy way to take things up a notch.
