AGENT OF THE MONTH: Brit Vora
My first priority is to make my clients happy! I listen to my clients’ wants and needs to achieve the best outcome in every transaction and I strive to ensure that the home buying, selling, or apartment locating process is fun, easy and stress-free. My clients can count on me any time of day when they have a question or concern. My enthusiasm for helping and bonding easily with others helps me connect with clients and provide them with the best service possible. When I’m not assisting my clients, I enjoy volunteering, exploring the city with my dog and husband, traveling, reading, and spending time with family and friends.

LINGUINE WITH LEMON PASTA
Looking for a way to spice up the ingredients you already have in your pantry? This zesty dinner option might be just what you’re looking for!
- 1 cup Roasted Tomatoes
- 4 very thin lemon slices
- 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 6 ounces linguine pasta
- 1 1/2 cups arugula
- 1 tablespoon fresh thyme
- 3 ounces fresh mozzarella, torn
- ¼ cup toasted pine nuts
- ½ cup fresh basil
- Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
- Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a small baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Place the lemon slices on the baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Roast for for 15 to 20 minutes or until they’re golden brown around the edges. Finely mince the lemons and set aside.
- In the bottom of a medium-sized (cold) pot, combine the olive oil, garlic, lemon juice, and ¼ teaspoon sea salt.
- Prepare the pasta according to the package directions, cooking until al dente. Reserve ¼ cup of the pasta cooking water. Scoop the hot pasta into the pot, along with the reserved pasta water, the arugula, and toss. If necessary, gently heat until the arugula wilts and the pasta is warmed through. Add the thyme, tomatoes, lemons, and toss again. Top with the mozzarella, pine nuts, and basil. Gently toss, season to taste and serve.
