Creamy Garlic Pasta

Here's another Pinterest meal that I tried recently. It was very tasty! I like that you cook this all in one pan instead of making a sauce and cooking the pasta separate. Less dishes!! Serve it immediately, because sauce absorbs fast and then it isn't as creamy.

Creamy Garlic Pasta
adapted from
2 tsp olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 TBSP butter
¼ tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
3 cups chicken stock
½ lb spaghetti
1 cup parmesan cheese, shredded
¾ cup heavy cream
2 TBSP chopped fresh parsley

1. In 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.
2. Once it is at a rolling boil, add the pasta and cook for as long as the box’s directions indicate. 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. Serve immediately.
Serves 6

Tip: Pay attention to the liquid as the pasta is cooking. If it starts to get low, turn the heat down a little.
