Creamy Garlic Pasta

Creamy Garlic Pasta #recipe by bunsinmyoven.com


I’m basically physically incapable of resisting a recipe that has the word creamy in the title.

I mean, no. I can not pass it up.

If it’s creamy, I will eat it. (Go ahead. Make the that’s what she said joke. I deserve it.)

Anyway, I was pinning all the things one day, when I came across this recipe for Creamy Garlic Pasta from The Cheese Pusher and it sounded like a simple, flavorful dinner that would be pretty much perfect for a cheesy, creamy, garlic pasta lover like myself.

So, I made the pasta. Then I stuffed it all in my face. It was fabulous. The flavor is really similar to alfredo, but there aren’t nearly so many calories as my standard alfredo sauce. It certainly isn’t low calorie fare, but I’m pretty sure that pasta was specifically made to make you hate skinny jeans, so you know. It’s cool.

Make this, eat it, live it, love it. That’s my motto.

Creamy Garlic Pasta

Yield: 4 servings

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

2 teaspoons olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 cups chicken stock
8 ounces linguine
8 ounces Parmesan cheese, grated
3/4 cup heavy cream
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Directions:

In a large stock pot, heat the olive oil and butter over medium heat. When the butter has melted, add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
Add the salt and chicken stock to the pan. Raise the heat to high and bring the stock to a boil.
Break the linguine in half and add it to the chicken stock. Cook according to package directions. (The amount of liquid left in the pot will determine how thick your sauce is. If you'd like it thicker, drain off most of the remaining liquid. I drained out about 1/4 cup.)
Reduce heat to medium and add the cheese to the pasta, stirring to combine. When cheese has melted, remove from the heat and stir in the cream and parsley.

    Also, that’s what she said. Had to.

    Ok this is what I want for dinner tonight, tomorrow, and for the rest of the week and into next week too. And whenever I’m craving a load of carbs. NOTHING beats garlic pasta.

    I’ve got a pot of chicken stock-in-the-making on the stove, and you’re tempting me to divert from the idea of making soup over to making pasta. I could even smash a clove of roasted garlic in there . . .

    Thanks, Karly!

    I could eat pasta morning, noon and night and this will certainly go into the rotation. Is there a garlic time? No, well there needs to be.

    I’ve been eating something similar, a lightened fettuccine alfredo, every day for about the last 10 days. And sadly, I’m not exaggerating. It’s so good and this looks really similar so I’m going to have to try this one, too! Cheese and carbs… YES!

    Any suggestions on amount of garlic powder instead of minced garlic? I know! I’m a heathen! But I have the world’s smallest/crappiest kitchen, plus a demanding nine-month-old, so I have to make everything as easy and quick as possible.

    For many, finding the perfect pair of jeans becomes a quest. Jeans are not all made the same, and since there are many styles to choose from, it can be difficult to find a pair that fit exactly the way you want them to. Popular styles include low rise, boot cut, skinny jeans, and flares. Choosing the right style usually means trying on a few before finding one that suits your body type. In addition to denim styles, there are also a variety of colors to choose from. While light colored blue jeans are usually worn during the day, darker denim is worn at nighttime. But many people wear dark denim during the day as well. Jeans are also available in different colors such as black, grey, and red.`

    Thank you so much for your explanation of how you made this recipe. I was looking for clarification before I cooked this and you helped me. I used beef stock and added ground beef and OMG I loved my own cooking. Thanks again :)

    Going to try this with FF 1/2 & 1/2. If I don’t taste the original, I won’t know the difference. I, too, can eat something like this day after day. May try adding green chilies & onions.
