Quick Pasta With Cream & Garlic

Dec 26 2011 - 3:07am

Now that the holidays are over, we're looking for some simple and delicious meals. Since it's still cold out, Fresh Tart's quick pasta with cream and garlic [1] sounds easy to make, but still rich and indulgent.

Inspired by a recent David Tanis/New York Times column [2] about the beauty of having a quick, satisfying pasta in your repertoire, I thought I'd share my recipe - if you can even call it that - for the pasta I make for my son at least once a week. Like the Tanis recipe, this dish comes together quickly, with ingredients easy to keep on hand, and delivers fast, filling comfort on a cold, busy day.

Or night! I was so taken by the idea of having a go-to dish to make after a sparkly night out, when it's very possible that you were offered a lowball glass of Cheetos, but not actual real food to absorb the perfect cocktails you sipped for too many hours. (I love you Marvel Bar, but I am ready to eat my hat by the time I get home from a lovely evening in your presence.)

(If you're gluten-free, you can substitute gluten-free pasta. Or, just make yourself a fried egg, with loads of hot sauce, which is what I often do. But that's a different post...)

For the recipe, go and visit Fresh Tart, [4] and if you feel inspired, create your own magnificent OnSugar food blog! [5]
