Garlic Addicts Pasta
source: tiny banquet committee
I’m addicted to garlic. Unless you are too, skip this recipe. Garlic Addicts Pasta is my favorite pasta dish, but it is not for the faint of heart!
1 head of garlic (even more if you can stand it!)
5 ounces uncooked pasta
1-2 tablespoon butter
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
salt to taste
1-2 pinches red pepper flakes
1/4 cup high quality grated Parmesan cheese
Peel the garlic and slice each clove into 3 or 4 pieces. Do not mince.
Cook the pasta till it’s done, but still firm (el dente). Drain well and mix with butter and salt to taste.
Quickly saute the garlic in the oil until it just starts to turn yellow. Add the red pepper flakes and continue cooking till the garlic is light brown. This should take another minute or less. Remove from the hot burner immediately or the garlic will burn.
Pour the garlic and oil mixture over the hot pasta. Sprinkle with plenty of Parmesan and eat immediately.
If made correctly, this dish is amazingly good.
