Pasta with Garlic-Lemon Sauce

Easy cook pasta, for those who are pasta lovers like me ! This one is best served as soon as cooked while the sauce was not absorbed yet by the pasta. Top with chopped basil for an extra kick. You may make this oil-free by omitting the oil and simmering the coconut milk with 2 tsp of garlic powder instead. Good for about 4 hungry people..
