Creamy pasta with a punch!
Garlic is one thing I add to almost every savory recipe. Even when it isn’t an ingredient that is called for, I will find a way to sneak it in. Maybe it’s because my father grew up on a garlic farm so I feel it’s something born in to me, or maybe it’s just because garlic is simply delicious!
I used to love this buttery garlic sauce from my favorite childhood Italian restaurant. I decided to remake it…. or improve it, with of course MORE GARLIC. I love rich pasta sauces so I figured I would make a thicker version.
You can have a creamy pasta sauce without cheese! This recipe is not dairy free since it uses milk and butter, but no cheese needed! If you really want to you could add some parmesan. I chose to use a gluten free all purpose flour to help thicken it up.
All you have to do for prep for this garlic pasta sauce is mince your garlic cloves. Add to a skillet with some butter. Pour in the milk and seasonings. Cook on medium low for about 6 minutes, stirring continuously. Slowly add in the flour. Once nicely thickened remove from heat and pour over noodles.
I used this little tool to mince up all my garlic. It makes chopping so quick and easy!
This garlic pasta sauce went perfectly with noodles and a steak! I should only warn you that if you don’t enjoy garlic as much as I do, this is a very potent recipe. But then again, why would you be reading this if you weren’t a garlic fan? Grab a fork and dive in!
My family still grows garlic on our ranch and we do sell it! Our garlic is fresh, homegrown and pesticide free. Plus the bulbs are hand planted, harvested and packaged. I can ship to you when we have the crop (US only). Garlic is seasonal the second half of the year, so I usually have some from the September-December months. It just depends how quickly I sell out!
