Gremolata

This weekend I made Gremolata which is tasty for dinner, but is perfect to pack for lunch when you're trying to save money.
You will need:
Grape tomatoes
parsley
lemon zest
garlic
oil
spaghetti
(I added chick peas to make it more filling)
First, wash and quarter the tomatoes and put water on the stove to boil so that the pasta will be done about the same time as the gremolata Then heat up the oil, and add chopped garlic over medium heat While the garlic is browning, chop the parsley into a bowl and scrape the zest from the lemon into the same bow. Use scissors to chop the parsley finer and to let the lemon flavor and parsley mix togetherAdd the tomatoes and chick peas to the oil and garlic.When the tomatoes start to lose their skin, add the parsley-lemon zest. I like to squeeze half of the lemon on top. When the parsley wilts take it off the heat and add it to the pasta. Toss with parmagiano-reggiano or parmesan cheese and eat!
