- Cook a pound of your favorite long pasta in salted water to al dente. My trusty fav is always whole wheat spaghetti. Heads up, you'll need some of the cooking water before you drain the pasta.
|I know I said garlic slices but my mom keeps me stocked with jars of freshly grated garlic so I take advantage. If you go this route, leave the garlic in for the rest of the recipe. Or you could take an hour detour trying to remove the little bits of garlic. Your choice.|
