Olive Oil and Garlic Pasta

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by redwine

A nearly naked pasta recipe! Great as a side dish or main dish.If desired throw in some sauteed spinach or other veggies.Don't cheat and use the pre minced garlic in a jar...it's water packed and not nearly as flavorful as fresh garlic.

This was just ok. So absolutely bland so I added salt. Other than that....Very good! My boyfriend hated it. Sorry...
