      My Italian sister-in-law who doesn't like to cook taught me this recipe years ago. It is now a staple in our house. and yes it must be with bow-ties! Hubby would eat it once a week if I let him. I actually take the time to slice my garlic very thin to cook in the oil. When the garlic is brown I scoop them out with a spoon and serve on the side for him. He loves the little chewy brown pieces of garlic mixed in with his pasta. I don't, but will sometimes throw dried red pepper flakes on mine. Once in a while we will drop fresh broccolli in the water with the pasta also. Yummy!!

      We liked the simplicity of this dish. I served it as a side at dinnertime. Toddler DD loves pasta & the bowties are a fun change for her. I think this would even make a great main dish with the addition of some cooked & shredded chicken or cooked & crumbled bacon. Thanks for sharing, LadyBell! Made, enjoyed & reviewed for PAC Spring 2008.
