Rich garlic sauce without the extra calories!
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 love buttery garlic sauce when it comes to pasta, or even drizzling on steak and veggies! I decided to make my own, with of course TONS OF GARLIC.
You can have a creamy pasta sauce without cheese! This garlic sauce recipe is not dairy free since it uses cream 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 and keep it on the healthier side.
All you have to do to prep for this garlic sauce is mince your garlic cloves. Then just add to a skillet with some butter and whisk in the flour. Next slowly pour in the cream and seasonings and cook on medium low for about 5 minutes, stirring continuously. Once nicely thickened remove from heat and pour over noodles.
I used this little handheld tool to mince up all my garlic. It makes chopping so quick and easy! Get it here and save time in the kitchen!
This garlic sauce went perfectly with noodles and meat! 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!
