2 tsp. olive oil

4 garlic cloves, pressed or finely minced

2 T. butter

¼ tsp. salt

½ tsp. pepper

¼ tsp. onion powder

3 ½ c. chicken stock

½ lb. linguini noodles

1 cup shredded parmesan cheese (not the powdered stuff)

¾ c. heavy cream

1 T. dried parsley



In a large pot, heat oil over medium heat.   Add the garlic and cook until fragrant.  Add butter and allow to melt.   Add salt, pepper, onion powder and chicken stock.   Increase heat and bring to a boil.  Add pasta and cook until tender and most of the liquid is absorbed, stirring occasionally.   Reduce the heat to medium low, stir in the parmesan, heavy cream and parsley.  Stir until cheese is melted.  Remove from heat and serve immediately.
