Another great Silver Palate Cookbook recipe.
This is one of my favorite go to recipes when I'm tired, hungry and want an easy meal.
Just a few simple ingredients and we are off to a great pasta dish.
Gather together some garlic, olive oil, spaghetti, chicken stock, Italian parsley and Parmesan cheese.
The only prep work you need to do is slice 6 cloves of garlic and mince the other six. Oh, and you need a cup of chopped Italian parsley.
Into the salted boiling water add your pasta. I use whole wheat pasta.
While the pasta is cooking heat the olive oil in a small skillet.
Add the sliced garlic and cook until golden brown.
Try and resist the urge to dip a bit of crusty bread into the warm, fragrant garlic infused oil.
Yeah, just try, I dare you.
Drain the pasta when it is cooked until tender but still firm.
Add the pasta back into the pot.
Add the chicken stock to the pasta and simmer for about 5 minutes more.
Stir in the heated olive oil and sliced garlic.
Add the minced garlic and the chopped parsley.
I didn't add the parsley at this time because I was making this for a pot luck at work today and I didn't want the parsley to get all wilty.
Looks and tastes great. I hope you try it.@@@@@ Now You're Cooking! Export Format
