Everyone needs a little garlic in their lives.

Unless your a vampire. 

Garlic Param Pasta 2

Everyone in my immediate family loves garlic. We even go to the garlic festival  every year. There is even a large selection of cheeses there as well, and I enjoy some good cheese.

Lets move on, shall we? I found a recipe on Damn Delicious for Parmesan Garlic Pasta, this is an adaption based on their recipe.  It combines, pasta, garlic, and cheese. Bonus: it’s a 1 pot meal. Heres what you need:

Garlic Parma Pasta

Prep Time 15 minutes Cook: 25-30 minutes. Most recipes say ten minute prep and only 20 minutes cooking, usually thats a lie. I mean it takes me 10 minutes just to mince garlic.

 

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced ( I used 6)
  • 2  cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup milk, add more if needed. (I used heavy cream)
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 8 ounces uncooked fettuccine
  • Salt and lots of pepper. Unless your not into the whole spice aspect.
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons  parsley flakes. If you have the real stuff use that.

Instructions

  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add garlic and cook, stirring until fragrant, about 1-2 minutes.
  • Stir in broth, milk, butter and fettuccine; sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until pasta is cooked, about 20 minutes. Stir in Parmesan. If the mixture is too thick, add more cream as needed until desired consistency is reached.
  • Serve immediately, garnished with parsley.

 

Enjoy!
