Parmesan Garlic Pasta

This is a n easy side dish that is similar to making a box of pasta roni. Of course it is so much better than the boxed stuff!

Parmesan Pasta

I used whole wheat linguine since that is what I had on hand. If you have fresh parsley, use that instead of the dried parsley flakes. If you like a real garlic taste, use up to four garlic cloves minced.

Recipe type: Pasta
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 2 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • ½ lb spaghetti or angel hair pasta, uncooked
  • ¾ cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • ¾ cup heavy cream
  • ½ tsp parsley
  1. In a pot, bring the olive oil to medium-low heat. Add the minced garlic, allowing it to cook for 1-2 minutes.
  2. Add in the butter until melted, salt and pepper.
  3. Next add the chicken stock to the garlic butter.
  4. Raise the heat to high and let it come to a boil.
  5. Once it is at a rolling boil, add the pasta. Reduce heat to medium and cook for as long as the box’s directions indicate.
  6. Mix in the parmesan until completely melted.
  7. Turn off the heat and stir in the cream and parsley.
  8. Serve immediately.
For a lighter version, substitute half and half or regular milk.
