Parmesan Garlic Pasta

When I was a child I would eat pasta almost every night of the week since it really can be used in different ways. I want to share a recipe with you that I use to make ( well I made a more childish version ).

When I was young I use to take Piano Class every Monday – so it was my job to eat dinner before hand. Each Monday I would cook up some pasta – throw a little butter in and some of that horrible Parmesan cheese that comes in that green can. Now that was “pretty” good in the eyes of a 10 year old girl. I updated the recipe a bit to include a bit of spice ( but not too much). This recipe is extremely family friendly. To make this recipe gluten free simply use your favorite gluten free pasta.

Here is a candid shot of Eric enjoying the pasta. There is a more staged shot but I liked this one MUCH better. He ended up eating that WHOLE bowl plus another one.

Parmesan Garlic Spaghetti Ingredients

To change up this recipe I would use different types of pasta. I even have used ravioli with this recipe and it worked out great. This recipe is enough for a family for 4 as long you serve with a protein with some kind I highly suggest Baked Chicken Recipe .  When I make this recipe ( with a small salad)  for Eric and myself there is enough for both of us for a serving plus one extra bowl worth of leftovers.
