I actually spent the first 18 years of my life or so living without garlic. My mum is desperately averse to it and won’t have it in the house, so all our food growing up omitted garlic, or used shallots and spring onions to make up for it. When I left home my eyes were opened to a sweet, garlicky world. Now my boyfriend refers to me as “garlic paws” because my hands always smell like it from grating, chopping or mincing my favourite flavour into everything we eat.
I don’t put it in everything, of course, there are some recipes where garlic just isn’t needed, or you want other flavours to stand out. This really isn’t one of them. You need to put lots of garlic in this recipe for it to taste good, otherwise it’s just pasta. So don’t be scaredy to put like 5 cloves in. Go crazy! And special apology to my mum, this recipe probably isn’t any good for you.
This is such an easy meal to throw together, and chances are you already have all of the ingredients. It’s quick, it’s delicious, it’s got cheese in. Is there anything else you could want?
