Sometimes simple is best. Seasoning a sauce to everyone’s taste can feel like an impossible potion from a series of books about witches and wizards. It can feel like a safer bet to buy something premade and blame the manufacturer when someone (anyone) complains. But there’s an easier answer — something that’s so difficult to ruin and so easy to make that it might be quicker than going to the specialty store to get the fancy, imported, premade stuff: garlic, olive oil, and lots of parmesan cheese.
With only five ingredients (not counting the pasta), you can really keep this recipe in your back pocket for those nights when you just don’t know what to make. A salad served alongside adds color and veggies to this tasty meal.
