Recipe: Spaghetti with garlic sage

I got home last night and was starving, I wanted something really quick and satisfying, this is what I came up with.

You’ll need:

  • 3 pats butter
  • About 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, chopped well, not minced.
  • About 10-20 fresh sage leaves (I like to use the little ones so it’s hard to judge, maybe a teaspoon?) de-stemmed
  • A tablespoon of  really good cheese,  grated finely. I used a light, Gouda-like one from Consider Bradwell Farm. I love their cheeses.
  • Celtic Sea salt for serving
  • Spaghetti, enough for three.
  1.  Heat up water for pasta.
  2. While that’s happening take about 2 tablespoons of the olive oil and put in a skillet. Add garlic and cook on low.
  3. After a few minutes add a pat of two of butter  and the sage leaves, keep it on low. You don’t want the garlic to brown.
  4. Add the rest of the oil and butter to the sage/garlic butter, you may need to remove it from the heat if it bubbles like crazy.
  5. When the pasta’s done drain it and put it back in the pot. Add the butter/oil sage and mix really well. Let sit for a minute or two.
  6. Serve with the shredded cheese on top, season with salt if needed.

Quick, easy and delicious, perfect for a cold, wet night.
