How to make delicious garlic pasta!
Cook your favourite noodle pasta as normal.
Get the kids involved! My girls love to peel garlic! When children get involved they are more likely to eat better and try something new!
Heat a small pot on medium heat. Add finely chopped chop garlic to the heated pot. Allow garlic to simmer for a minute to get the full aromatic flavour.
Add in the butter and allow to partially melt.
Add in cream cheese and break up with a stirring spoon.
Stir milk into the mixture and bring to a boil.
While bringing to a boil add in parsley and seasonings.
Once boiled reduce heat to medium and add in the sour cream. Stir well and allow to begin to boil.
Remove from heat. Allow garlic pasta sauce to cool for a minute or two to thicken.
Pour over cooked pasta and serve immediately. Makes a perfect side dish for our Easy Oven-Baked Ribs too!
Sprinkle parmesan cheese over pasta if desired.
Enjoy your 10-minute Gourmet Garlic Pasta!
It really is that simple to create a gourmet side dish! You can also add in sliced grilled chicken breast to make this a main course meal. Our kids rave about our Garlic Pasta and never leave a morsel on their plates. So get your chef hat on and let’s give Gordon Ramsay a run for his money! 😉
