Description

This is the easiest and tastiest dinner around—and only takes 15 minutes to make!

Ingredients

  • ½ pounds Linguine Pasta
  • ½ cups Cooking Liquid From Pasta
  • 2 Tablespoons Salted Butter
  • ¼ cups Heavy Cream
  • ½ cloves Garlic, Finely Minced
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • ¾ cups Parmigiano Reggiano (Use The Real Stuff!)
  • Fresh Parsley For Garnish (optional)

Preparation

Bring a large pot of water up to boil. Sprinkle in a generous amount of salt and stir in pasta. Cook linguine until al dente and drain, reserving 1/2 cup cooking liquid. Place linguine back into the hot pot and stir in butter, cream, garlic, salt, pepper and cheese until butter and cheese start to melt and create a sauce. Pour in some pasta water to get the sauce to the consistency you want (I only used about 3 tablespoons). Taste and adjust seasonings accordingly. Pour onto a serving platter and top with fresh parsley and more grated cheese.

Recipe notes:
1. I used a microplane for grating the garlic and the parmesan cheese right into the pot. If you are using pre-grated store bought parmesan cheese, I’d recommend using about 1/2 cup.
2. This recipe only gives only a hint of garlic. Adjust the garlic level according to your preference!

I made this recipe tonight and doubled it for my family. EVERYBODY loved it and had seconds. I even forgot to reserve some of the pasta water and it still turned out super yummy. I think the key is to use the good cheese as called for in the recipe — reggiano parmesan cheese. Also excellent with a rose wine. Just thought you’d like to know that!
