Garlic Pasta Category: Vegetarian: No meats, etc… Posted by: Scratcher Quantity: Serves 4-6.
Ingredients: 1/2 lb. pasta (uncooked) 6-8 cloves of garlic 3 T olive oil 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream salt (half and half can be substituted) pepper parmesan or romano cheese
Instructions: Slice garlic very thin and sauté in the olive oil until not quite brown (it gets bitter if it gets too browned). I sometimes throw in some oregano or red pepper at this stage. Add whipping cream a little salt and ample pepper and lower the heat a little. Reduce liquid by simmering a few minutes. Toss with the pasta. (Cook it while you're making the sauce!) Grate as much cheese onto the pasta as you desire. Eat up!
Comments: This is a very good vegetarian pasta recipe, but it's certainly not low cal. Also, it's not vegan so I hope you're not of that persuasion. Compliments of the Frugal Gourmet. This is really easy and yummy! I often use rainbow, curly pasta – it traps the pieces of garlic nicely. Oh, and you should try to use fresh parmesan cheese if you can because this loses something with the Kraft stuff. I know it's expensive, but it's much better in the long run and really worth it.
