Creamy Parmesan & Garlic Pasta

Tammy T


My 3 favorites in one pot. Cheese, garlic and angel hair pasta! I just love this sauce! Makes a great side or a light lunch with some crusty bread. One of the best comfort foods I know!

2 tsp
olive oil
cloves garlic, minced
2 Tbsp
1/4 tsp
1/2 tsp
3 c
chicken stock
1/2 lb
spaghetti or angel hair pasta
1 c
grated parmesan cheese
3/4 c
heavy cream
2 Tbsp
chopped fresh parsley


1In 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.
2Once it is at a rolling boil, add the pasta and cook for as long as the box’s directions say. You want it aldente'. I always do the shorter time. 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. Sprinkle with some parmesan and serve immediately. ( I heat the cream a little in the micro before adding, but do not boil)
3You can add so many foods to this. I just like it plain and simple as always.
