More than just Desserts

I usually try to keep my actual food pretty healthy, believe it or not. i do go crazy with the desserts though. But, I broke from my usual healthy dinner and made this super delicious garlic cream pasta.  The only healthy thing about it was the garden vegetable spaghetti I used. Other than that, it was basically a garlic Alfredo pasta. 

2 tsp olive oil
1 clove elephant garlic, minced
2 tbsp butter
¼  tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
3 cups chicken stock
½ lb spaghetti or angel hair pasta (or whatever you like really)
1 cup grated parmesan cheese
¾ cup heavy cream

Place the olive oil and minced garlic in a pot on medium low heat. Cook for about 5 minutes.  Mix in butter until melted, and then add salt, pepper, and chicken stock. raise the that to high until it comes to a rolling boil, then add pasta and cook according to the box's instructions. Once the pasta is cooked, reduce the heat to medium and mix in the parmesan cheese until it is completely melted. Turn off the heat and mix in the heave cream. Serve immediately. I added some fresh grated parmesan on top as well as some salt and pepper to taste. It was fabulous!
