  2. Combine the pasta and reserved water in a large bowl; stir the lemon juice, lime juice, parsley, cilantro, and sage through the pasta until evenly mixed. Serve hot.

This is a nice light pasta. I used fresh parsley, lemon balm, and basil. This would be really good reducing the water and adding a drizzle of olive oil. Also, this would be good with a little added zing- maybe with a little sprinkle of parmesan.

Good, if your going to have it as a main meal may want to add some kind of meat. Next time I think I'm going to try that and only adding half a tablespoon of each herb.

How nice to have a pasta dish that has no tomato sauce or cream sauce that makes a great accompaniment for other ingredients. This was perfect as a nest for Texas Beer Boiled Shrimp. I used angel hair pasta and cut the water back to just 1 tbs, which I added to 1 tbs lemon and lime juice and 1 tbs EVOO for 2 servings. Cilantro isn't a favorite so I used basil instead and reduced the sage to a rounded tsp. The possibilities are endless. Thank you Ryan, this is a keeper!
