  • Wrap lemons in aluminum foil.

  • Place lemons in the preheated oven and roast until tender, about 30 minutes.

  • While lemons are roasting, bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add penne and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 11 minutes. Drain pasta and set aside.

  • Remove lemons from the oven and let cool slightly. Remove foil, slice each lemon in half, and squeeze roasted lemon pulp into a bowl.

  • Heat oil in a large skillet. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add lemon pulp and cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Add cooked pasta, basil, salt and pepper; toss well. Serve hot.
