Recipe by T Mitchener
When Gramma passed away, my mom was given the job to make this garlic spaghetti for every family get together. It's so easy and cheap to make I decided I'd give it a try and it's awesome. The bowl will be empty before you know it!! If you love garlic and pasta like I do, you'll love this. It's a very light flavored pasta.
- 3⁄4 cup olive oil
- 1⁄2 cup butter
- 5 -6 garlic cloves (chopped or minced)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon basil
- 1⁄4 teaspoon oregano
- 1⁄2 teaspoon parsley
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 lb linguine
Directions See How It's Made
- Combine the spices. While your noodles are cooking start warming a little of the olive oil and the garlic on low heat until the garlic has cooked (don't over cook or burn the garlic) and the flavors are released. Add a little butter and a little of the spices and let simmer on low for about a minute while stirring. Keep repeating the steps until everything has been added. The slower you add and the longer you let simmer the better the flavor.
- Once the noodles are done drain and toss together. We keep it in a crock pot to keep it warm or to take to work for pot luck days!
- I'm sure you can add any other spices you like or add more garlic. Serving size depends on if you are using this as a side dish as we do.
