Creamy Garlic Pasta

A very yummy... very filling... very garlicky pasta!!!!  Found on Pinterest.   I made two versions.... one for me and one for the non-fish-eating-hubby.   Both were yummy!!

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
Optional: 8-12 Large Shrimp

In a pot, bring the olive oil to medium-low heat. Add the garlic and stir, allowing it to cook for 1-2 minutes. 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. 

Once it is at a rolling 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. Turn off the heat and stir in the cream and parsley. Serve immediately.

If doing the Shrimp version, Saute shrimp in 1 Tbsp butter, 1 Tbsp Olive Oil, & 3 cloves garlic for 4-5 minutes.   Serve on top of pasta.

  1. I am so happy I found this page! I did notice thought that you use some ingredients that are not IC friendly - like onions and aged cheese. Is that b/c it is okay or b/c it is okay for you. I am new to this, so just wondering
