Who doesn’t love a little cheese with their pasta? I’m always scouring Pinterest for new and interesting recipes to make for my husband.

I’m a huge fan of CHEESE, and he is a huge fan of pasta, I had to try it. I added pancetta for some crisp flavor. It is comfort food at it’s best! My husband loves it and on those cold, wintery nights, this is a good one to make for the family!


 

Creamy Garlic Pasta

Ingredients:

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

Sliced pancetta

Directions:

  1. In a pot, bring the olive oil to medium-low heat. Add the garlic and pancetta; stir, allowing it to cook for one-two minutes.
  2. 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.
  3. Once it is at a 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.
