Garlic Butter and Basil Pasta

Hello all,

A few weeks back I saw a blog post by Andrea of Cooking with a Wallflower. For Basil Garlic Noodles. I had to give the recipe a try but with my own twist to it. Thank you to Andrea for the inspiration.

Now let’s get started………

Ingredients:

2 TBS of unsalted butter (my preference Kerry gold click here to read why)
10 cloves of garlic
1 1/2 TBS of dried basil
1/2 Cup of peppers (red, yellow or green or a blend of all 3)
1 Cup of fresh spinach
1 tsp of crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp of sea salt and black pepper
1 package of pappardelle pasta ( or pasta of choice)
1/3 Cup of reserved pasta water

This is a great quick and easy recipe. I will even put up a video to make peeling garlic easy. You will have your garlic peeled in 20 second flat. I promise it is quick and easy.

Now that you have all your garlic peeled and other items prepped. Let’s get cooking.

Instructions:

1. Cook pasta according to packaging and remember to reserve 1/3 cup of pasta water.
