Quick & Easy: An intense, yet effortless garlic sauce pasta

FETTUCCINE WITH GARLIC-PARMESAN PUREE

2 cups garlic cloves, peeled (buy pre-peeled for convenience)

2 cups chicken broth

12 oz. fettuccine pasta

2 cups grated Parmesan cheese, plus extra to serve

Salt and ground black pepper

In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, combine the garlic and broth. Bring to a boil and cook for 12 minutes, or until the broth is reduced by half and the garlic is very tender. Transfer the garlic and broth to a blender and puree until smooth. Set aside.

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook until al dente, 8 to 10 minutes. Reserve ¼ cup of the pasta cooking water, then drain the pasta and transfer to a large bowl.

Pour the garlic puree over the pasta. Using tongs, toss the pasta with the sauce, sprinkling in the cheese as you do it. When the cheese is nearly melted, drizzle in enough of the reserved pasta cooking water to form a smooth sauce. Season with salt and pepper, then serve topped with additional Parmesan.

Makes 6 servings.
