Creamy Garlic Pasta

When it comes to my Achilles heal the very top of the list, behind any vice I could possibly have, are starches!

Potatoes, pasta, bread....Y.U.M.M.E.R.S!

It's horrible...I really have no self-control (shocker) when it comes these three favorites.

So with a strong will and a heavy heart I have been try my best to avoid them like the plague....Try as I might, I failed.

Went down in flames, hit my startch rock bottom....FAILED!

In my defense, it really wasn't my fault.  I blame Pinterest.

No really, if I am forced (clearly against my will) to spend hours looking at all the amazing, scrumptuous recipes, I am only being set up for failure.

That makes sense, right?  No?  Well we're gonna go with it anyway!

Giving in to my failure I went back to one of my stand-by mantras....Go big or go home!

All of that to be said, I tried this as a side to a really healthy meal otherwise and it might just have to be a another sin on the list of sinfully delicious treats I allow myself...and you know what, I am totally ok with that!

1 lb angel hair pasta
(3) 14.5 oz cans of chicken broth
2 cups of whipping cream
1/2 cup grated parmesan
2 tbsp butter
1 tsp minced garlic
chopped parsley for garnish

Melt butter in large pot over medium heat.  When butter is melted, add garlic.  Cook for 1 minute.  
After cooking garlic, add chicken broth to the pot and bring to a boil.  
Once chicken broth is boiling, add angel hair pasta.  Cook pasta until done then lower heat and let simmer until most of the broth has evaporated.  
Turn heat off and add whipping cream and parmesan cheese.  
Garnish with chopped parsley and serve!
Pin It!
