Make this easy meat-free spaghetti on nights when you don't have a lot of time to cook! It is a great way to make use of the summer fennel and sweet onion harvest (I have both growing in abundance in my garden right now). Feel free to use any type and shape of pasta you would like here. Serve pasta with a green salad and a glass of white wine for a light summer meal.

12 ounces brown rice spaghetti noodles cooked
4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 large sweet onion cut into crescent moons
2 medium fennel bulbs cut into crescent moons
½ teaspoons sea salt
½ teaspoons black pepper
4 cloves garlic crushed
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest
½ cups finely grated parmesan cheese
¼ cups finely chopped fennel fronds
¼ cups finely chopped parsley


1 handfuls fresh basil
