Texas Girl, Just seeing Caesar Salad makes me want one!! With some grilled chicken breast!! A nice red wine....Yum

Garlic ... Garlic... Garlic!!!!!

A recipe for you!! My fellow Garlic Lover

Angel hair Pasta in Garlic Butter sauce
2 table spoons olive oil

3 or 4 large cloves of garlic run through the garlic press

3 table spoons of butter in a small saute pan

Heat the butter on high, as it begin to boil/froth, turn heat off and add the garlic to the butter, stir. while stirring add the olive oil and continue stirring

The sauce is finished when the garlic begins to brown... about 3 minutes. (if you use margarine the garlic doesn't brown, set a timer 3 minutes, if using gas stove turn to a low heat, once butter is frothing/boiling, to a simmer.)
Strain the garlic out of the butter/olive oil

I put the garlic sauce over Angel hair pasta(just love angel hair pasta) with some veggies. Usually green beans, carrots, broccoli, snow peas, roma tomatoes, onion and yellow or red bell peppers. (prepare/cut veggies before making sauce and couple the veggies by cooking time)

Cook all the veggies in the water with pasta.
Bring water to boil, (I use my wok, boils water faster) Carrots and green beans are put in the water, set timer for 3 minutes,

BING, add the broccoli and carrots, and pasta(which takes 3 minutes to cook) set timer for 2 minutes

Bing, add the onion, bell pepper and roma tomato set timer for 1 minute

Bing, drain the pasta/veggies and then add the garlic sauce and toss thoroughly.

Serve.... have added grilled chicken or cooked shrimp, just add to the veggie pasta boil for 1 minute, or let soak in the garlic sauce while cooking the pasta/veggies.

only 2 pots/pans to wash and the veggies in the pasta make it a bit lighter of a dish. Twirl that pasta and enjoy.

I cook for one... but there is always a good size portion for a great left over meal!!
