Creamy Garlic Pasta
It’s rich and creamy, while the fresh parsley gives it a nice bit of color and flavor. But more importantly, it gives me my garlic fix. And when I can combine my two loves, garlic and cheese? Now that’s a beautiful thing.
- 2 teaspoon olive oil
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 3 cups chicken stock
- 1/2 pound spaghetti or angel hair pasta
- 1 cup grated parmesan cheese
- 3/4 cup heavy cream
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

In a pot, bring the olive oil to medium-low heat. Add the garlic and stir, allowing it to cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Mix in the butter until melted. Add the salt, pepper and chicken stock. Raise the heat to high and let it come to a boil.
Once it is at a rolling boil, add the pasta and cook for as long as the box’s directions indicate. Reduce the stove to medium heat and mix in the parmesan until completely melted. Turn off the heat and stir in the cream and parsley.
