the time has finally come, the time, for another recipe. and this weeks is good.
it is very good. I made it very simple, but it would be even better with a protein.
remember that, okay? I'm thinking shrimp would make it the best...
if somebody tries that, please let me know. I would be very interested.
this weeks recipe is: Creamy Garlic Pasta
[you may have seen similar recipes on Pinterst, however, I don't really follow directions so this probably won't look or taste the same]
2 [ish] tsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
6 cloves of Garlic - minced
2 tbsp. Butter - I used "I Can't Believe It's Not Butter" and everything turned out okay
1/4 tsp. Salt
1/2 tsp. Pepper
3 cups Chicken Stock - I used organic/free range stock, read the labels while at the store. you will not believe the stuff that is in there.
1/2 lb Angel Hair Pasta
1 cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
3/4 cup Fat Free Half & Half
2 [ish] tbsp. Fresh Chopped Parsley
In a pot** heat olive oil over medium-low heat for 1-2 minutes. Add garlic, stirring occasionally, cook until tender (approximately 1-2 minutes). Do not allow garlic to brown, if garlic browns, discard and begin again.
Once at a full boil, add pasta and cook per box directions. When pasta is fully cooked, reduce to medium heat and mix in parmesan cheese until completely melted.
**choose a pot large enough for all ingredients to fit into.
