When the weather starts to get cooler, pasta is a great comfort food. It’s also really easy to make after a long day, and there are so many recipes out there to choose from.
We made a delicious cream cheese pasta the other night, and it was the perfect dinner to eat curled up on the couch with a movie.
What we did
Boil the pasta. When the noodles are halfway cooked, heat a pan on medium and saute garlic in a few tablespoons of butter. (Use as much or as little garlic as you like. I prefer 3-4 cloves, but only if someone else is eating it too. Then we both have garlic breath.)
Add chopped green onions to the pan and heat for a minute.
Add one package of cream cheese, a pinch of sea salt, and lots of fresh cracked pepper.
Heat and slowly stir, until you have a smooth and creamy sauce. If your sauce is too thick, thin it with a bit of milk.
Mix the sauce with the pasta, and garnish with a bit of fresh basil if you have any on hand.
