Crack Pasta…aka Creamy Garlic Pasta

Listen up folks. The recipe I’m sharing with you today is insane. So good. It’s like crack but in pasta form. Get ready to have your mind blown.

Originally my friend found this recipe on Pinterest and we made it for a ladies night dinner. It was a big hit.

 

The element that makes this pasta so good is that the pasta is cooked in chicken broth rather then water. I had no idea what a difference that makes. It adds so much flavor!

You can find the recipe here. But I’ll spell it out for you anyways.

Creamy Garlic Pasta
2 tsp olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tbsp butter
¼  tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
3 cups chicken stock
½ lb spaghetti or angel hair pasta
1 cup grated parmesan cheese
¾ cup heavy cream
2 tbsp chopped fresh parsley

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.

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.

Make this for friends/family/significant others. Its super easy and tastes amazing. It’ll make people think you’re stellar in the kitchen!

  1. I braved a massive power failure to make sure that I made this tonight. AND IT WAS GREAT. I used veggie broth instead of chicken broth (duh) and I used a lemon-pepper blend (from TJs) instead of just plain salt & pepper. It was a big hit with manfriend =)
