Garlic Spaghetti

From: Taste of Home: Quick Cooking

Ingredients:
1 package (16 oz) spaghetti
10 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup olive or vegetable oil
1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
2 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese




Cook spaghetti according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a skillet over low heat, cook garlic in oil until lightly browned. Remove from the heat; stir in parsley, oregano, salt and pepper. Drain spaghetti; place in a large bowl. Add garlic mixture and Parmesan cheese; toss to coat.


What I did differently from the recipe:
I only used about 6-8 oz of spaghetti. I used probably about 3 or 4 garlic cloves, 1/8 cup of parsley, and 1/4 cup of Parmesan (I added more Parmesan at the end). In other words, I pretty much cut the recipe in half.

What I'll do differently next time:
Same.

Verdict:
Thumbs up. But it was just good - it wasn't stand-out fabulous or anything. It was definitely easy, fast, and good though. Great quickie recipe!
