Pasta with Herbs

As busy women we often buy into the concept that we don’t have time to cook.   With a little prep, little creativity and a little help… we can both bring home the bacon and fry it up in the pan!  Here is a new favorite that takes under 15 minutes.  It makes a great side dish to complement any protein or add a protein for a complete dish.

1 box of Pasta (Spaghetti, Linguine or Angel Hair Pasta )
1/2 Cup Premium Olive Oil
2 Cloves of Garlic
1 Cup of Chopped, Mixed Herbs 

Rinse and rough chop herbs.  What herbs?  It doesn’t matter.  I keep a  small herb garden.  For this dish I use it all: basil, oregano, thyme, tarragon, parsley and a little sage.

Drop your pasta in boiling water and cook according to the package

While the pasta is cooking, saute the garlic in the the olive oil over low heat.  Be sure not to let the garlic over brown.

Drain your pasta and add to the pan with the olive oil.  

Add the herbs and toss.

Top with a firm cheese like Parmesan, Romano or even Manchego.

This pasta dish is fantastic with the addition of grilled shrimp or chicken.  We serve it as a side with a great Summer steak!
