    This is a great thing to make in a real hurry! I have it for lunch all the time. My favorite "add-in" is just before the pasta is done I add a can of diced tomatoes, really just to heat them up. Yum, think I will have some thisafternoon.

    Yum! Read the reviews and then decided to add a can of petite diced tomatoes. I doubled the parsley and the garlic. Also, I had just made bacon so rather than using the olive oil, I just threw everything in the bacon pan (poured off almost all the drippings). Gave it a really good smoky flavor - so much that I will do the same next time and maybe add a bit of crumbled bacon. So I made some significant changes, but this is a great basic recipe. Thanks!

    Super easy and fast! Wonderful flavour! I served this under NurseDi's Eggplant Casserole #48732. Will definately make this again and might add some extras next time. Good "base" pasta to throw in some veggies or tomatoes.

    VERY, VERY yummy! I made this as stated and would probably cut the oil down even further. Our whole family loved this! I added crushed red peppers and increased the garlic.

    I really enjoyed this pasta. I added red bell pepper, basil, fennel and paprika for some pizazz and MMMMM! My house gobbled it up. Many thanks!

    Loved this recipe!! So simple and subtle but so delicious. I just kinda eyeballed everything. I added some Sherry cooking wine, some lemon juice, and I didn’t have any Parsley so I just put a few pinches of dried oregano for the leafy color lol. I put a bunch of shredding Parmesan on top and it was excellent!!

    added a little kosher salt, butter, dried basil, and oregano to the olive oil garlic mixture. Also, used granulated garlic in addition to minced. Reserved a little pasta water to add to pasta in storage container to keep it from drying out. Did not add parmesan since my daughter is a picky eater. Great and easy recipe and if my 4 yo likes, it’s a keeper.

    Subbed fresh basil for fresh parsley, probably overcooked the garlic but it gave it a nice smoky flavor. Really good!

    I substituted butter for oil also. Kindof like a tradtional alfredo sauce. Very good

    LOVE THIS! I made a couple of changes to suit my personal preferences... Instead of oil, I use butter (not a low-fat version of the recipe by any means!!!) and I typically use spinach fettuccine noodles instead of angel hair. The FRESH parsley is key!!!
