Creamy Garlic Pasta

Do you remember the first thing you ever cooked on your own? I’m fairly certain mine was Pasta Roni.

Angel Hair with Parmesan Cheese to be exact! I loooooved this pasta. Still do as a matter of fact! This is the perfect hangover comfort food. But, it’s loaded with salt, fat and calories, so imagine my delight when I discovered this recipe for creamy garlic pasta. It’s basically a healthier knock off of my favorite childhood cuisine. It’s just as fast and easy too!

Start by heating olive oil, butter and garlic in a large skillet.

Cook for 1-2 minutes, then add chicken broth, milk, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Then add angel hair and cook for 3-5 minutes.

When pasta is cooked, mix in cheese and cook until sauce thickens up a bit. Finally, stir in parsley and serve. Sauce will thicken as it stands.
