Garlicky Pasta Sauce

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Halcyon Eve

This simple sauce is very quick and very garlicky. It's not hot or strong, but rather buttery-rich from the garlic. Great on angel hair pasta or any other long pasta such as linguine or spaghetti.

Quick and easy to throw together if you have only these few ingredients at home. My boyfriend LOVED this sauce! Said it tasted better than any other jarred/canned sauce he has ever had!
