One Pot Cheesy Garlic Pasta is amazingly creamy and delicious!
Just the thought of cheese, garlic, and pasta brings a smile to my face, so I thought it was brilliant to combine them all into one comforting dish.
You could add some grilled chicken or shrimp over top for more of a complete meal, but we enjoyed ours just like this.
Here is how to make One Pot Cheesy Garlic Pasta
Begin with a large pot over medium heat and add 2 Tbsps butter.
Once the butter is melted add minced garlic.
Let the garlic cook for a minute and add chicken stock, heavy cream, a pound of angel hair pasta, kosher salt, and pepper.
Raise the heat to bring this to a boil.
The pasta will stand up at first, but after about a minute will soften enough for you to push it down into the liquid.
Reduce the heat to low and let this cook a total of about 8 minutes.
Stir it a few times throughout.
You’ll notice the pasta absorbing all the liquid as it cooks.
This is what you should see after 8 minutes.
Lastly stir in freshly chopped parsley and a good, quality parmesan cheese.
It will melt into a gorgeous, creamy pasta dish that you will want to devour immediately!
I topped my One Pot Cheesy Garlic Pasta with a little extra parsley to make it look even prettier 🙂
The whole family absolutely went crazy over this meal!
