This creamy garlic pasta recipe is a go-to because it’s so easy to make, doesn’t take long, and doesn’t require a ton of ingredients.
There are certain foods that I’ll ALWAYS feel like eating, and they include mashed potatoes, grilled cheese, and creamy garlic pasta.
Like many of my recipes, you can be flexible with a lot of these ingredient amounts. I don’t put specific salt/pepper/parsley measurements because those are pretty easy to figure out to make the dish to your liking. The onion powder is totally optional, but I’ve made this dish with and without, and I liked the extra flavor it added. I’ve also made this recipe using fresh garlic, as well as prepared (i.e. a jar of minced garlic) and didn’t notice a difference! Adding the Parmesan is also optional, but if you ask me, the cheesier the better so Parmesan never hurts!
I really like measuring out all my ingredients ahead of time so I can easily add things as I go – I also find this makes less of a mess!
Next time you’re looking for a quick and easy comfort food dinner, give this creamy dreamy garlic penne a try and let me know what you think! Hope you love it!
I LOVE these little latte bowls from Anthropologie. The one you see in this post is in the color “Mimosa Bloom.” They are so handy for so many things in the kitchen! I have the full size too, and they’re equally awesome.
Until next time!
