How To Make Parmesan Garlic Noodles

Have you ever had those garlic noodles from the box?  The ones with the angel hair?  I think Rice-a-Roni makes them.  Well, that’s what these garlic parmesan noodles taste like, only better.

It shouldn’t surprise me that a recipe this simple has been at the top of our website for over 5 years.  It’s pure comfort food.  It’s simple.  It’s fast.   It cooks in one pot, including the pasta.

What’s not to like?

I used angel hair pasta which only takes 4 minutes to cook, and yes it is a white pasta. I searched high and low for whole wheat angel hair and couldn’t find it. 🙁

You start by making the sauce which has 6 cloves of garlic in it!  I told you it was garlicky and add chicken stock, half and half (or whole milk) and parmesan cheese.
