Pasta Time

I rarely make pasta but recently I have been craving some sort of fresh garlic pasta dish and I just had to give in. From this came a semi pesto like sauce which left me full and happy.

Parmesan Garlic Pasta with Tomatoes
·        ½ stick (1/4 cup) unsalted butter
·        4 large cloves garlic, finely minced
·        3/4 cups chicken or vegetable stock
·        2 Tablespoon fresh basil, chopped
·        salt and pepper to taste
·        ¼ cup parsley, chopped
·        ½ cup fresh grated parmesan cheese
·        2 cups whole cherry tomatoes
·        Angel Hair Pasta

Fresh Chesse..yum!
  1. Over medium heat add butter and garlic to a pot and sauté garlic until soft. Add the stock and simmer until liquid is reduced slightly.
  2. Add the parsley and basil and simmer for another minute. Add in the cooked pasta and the parmesan cheese.
  3. Stir until pasta is fully coated with the sauce. Garnish pasta with cherry tomatoes and enjoy!
Serves 2
