Here’s a simple ‘go to’ for a quick and delicious pasta with little fuss. Pasta Aioli… So simple yet so good! I would eat this a lot in college because it was something that didn’t require a lot of time or money. I will admit in college I used dried spices instead of fresh and my cheese was probably not real cheese but a cheese substitute….LOL! It was good then, but better now that I only have the best ingredients on hand.
Linguine with Basil & Garlic Aioli
1 package linguine noodles
3/4 cup good olive oil
8-10 cloves of garlic chopped
1/4 cup fresh basil chopped
1/4 cup fresh parsley chopped
salt & pepper
2 Tbs butter
1/4 cup pasta water
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
Boil Linguine according to box directions in a large pot. Here’s a tip I discovered by accident…use a wine bottle cork to prevent water from boiling over. Strain pasta; reserve 1/4 cup pasta water. Return pot to stove and heat olive oil on medium-high. Add garlic first and cook for one minute. Add herbs and cook for an additional minute. Return pasta to pot. Add butter, 1/4 cup pasta water and Parmesan cheese. Toss generously.
Serve and Eat!
