Creamy Lemon Pasta with Grilled Chicken





Yes, I'm grilling. In November. I just made soup yesterday and today I'm breaking out the grill. A little cray cray but after finding this yummy lemon pasta dish I decided that I had to make it for dinner. Winter or not and I'm so glad I made it. This was incredible!
