  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add linguine and cook according to package directions.
  2. While linguine is cooking, heat oil and garlic in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Let garlic cook for about 5 minutes. You do not want the garlic to brown too quickly so you may have to adjust the heat.
  3. Once the pasta is cooked, drain it and return it to the pot. Add warm garlic oil, lentils, artichoke, sundried tomatoes, basil, and lemon. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  4. Divide the pasta into four bowls. Drizzle with a little more oil and garnish with grated Parmesan cheese.
