40 Recipes :: Creamy Garlic Pasta

Recipe Source:  Blog
Made : August 31, 2013

2 tsp olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp butter
¼  tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
3 cups chicken stock
½ lb spaghetti or angel hair pasta
1 cup grated parmesan cheese
¾ cup heavy cream
2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley


In a pot, bring the olive oil to medium-low heat. Add the garlic and stir, allowing it to cook for 1-2 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. Serve immediately.
Thoughts:  Really good.  The heavy cream we bought was bad (we bought brand new that day).  So we had to make due and use milk.  Ours was a little cheesy, definitely needed the heavy cream.  But it was still good!  I think in the future it will be a side dish to chicken or shrimp.

Make again? Yes!
