Pasta with Oil and Garlic
Make this fantastically simple recipe as-is or mix it up! This pasta can be altered to suit whatever you have on hand. Toss in some veggies, leftover cooked meats or some beans and voila! A complete meal in minutes. The recipe calls for linguine, but I love to make this simple dish with tricolored farfalle, pictured above.
