Creamy Garlic Pasta

I will start this out with saying I LOVE garlic, I use more garlic in recipes than most. (When a recipe calls for 2 cloves I use 4 – no joke)
Give this one a try, it turned out deliciously!

Creamy Garlic Pasta

  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 7 chives green and white
  • 7 mini bell peppers
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 cups chicken stock (I used a homemade one that I had saved)
  • 1 lb spaghetti or angel hair pasta
  • 1 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup heavy cream

    Ingredients

Cook your pasta as directed on the box, drain and set aside

In a food processor put in your peppers and chives and pulse them so that they are roughly chopped (You can also just roughly chop them by hand)

We paired this pasta with some pork chops we made on the grill that were so delicious. (I will post that recipe soon-don’t you worry) I was inspired to try making this pasta from a recipe I saw online but changed it around to work with things I had in the pantry as well as amp up the flavors!
