Creamy Lemon Rotini

This is a great side dish with a ton of flavor. This was the first time I had made it and it was a perfect addition to the dinner.

4 cups rotini pasta, cooked according to package directions
2 Tbsp butter
 4 ounces of cream cheese, cubed
1 cup whole milk
1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese, divided
1 Tbsp lemon zest
1 tsp dried parsley**I used fresh**
1/8 tsp freshly ground pepper
Melt butter in a large sauce pan and mix in the cream cheese and milk.  Stir constantly until the cream cheese is completely melted and the sauce is well blended.  Stir in 2 Tbsp of the Parm. Toss the cooked rotini with the sauce, the zest and parsley until evenly coated.  Top with the pepper and the rest of the Parmesan cheese. YUM!
