I made Garlic Crack Sauce Pasta a few weeks back on insta-stories on a whim because I hadn’t had dinner and it was 9pm and I needed something stat. Hanger (hungry + anger) was setting in!  Naturally I reverted back to my 7 year old self and made the pasta I would order on Tuesday nights at Italian Night our country club. Side note – that sounds so much more snobby that it actually is I promise.

All the adults would get fancy pastas and I remember vividly walking up to the pasta station and knowing exactly what I wanted. I wanted an olive oil sauce with tons of garlic and lemon and cheese. That’s it. I’d add extra salt and pepper once I got back to my fam and then HOSE it down. Let’s just take a minute to reminisce about the good old days when I was playing like 3 hours of tennis a day and swimming every morning and could eat 213108293 lbs of pasta a day and still be a string bean! Anyways… I’ve upped the ante, added my new Go-To Seasoning blend for maximum flavor and life is look pretty good!!

Garlic Crack Sauce Pasta for those nights when you’re in a rush and you just need something dependable… let’s do this! Garlic Crack Sauce is LIFE

    So garlic crack sauce is amazing, and totally addictive (although I had to make my own seasoning blend…I’m not in a country with Williams-Sonoma). But have you thought about using it in Linguine and Clams? Because oh. em. gee. So good.

      Deannna — what did your put in your seasoning blend? I’m also in a country with out WS.

    • Mona Richardson

      Would you mind sharing the seasoning you used? I want to make this recipe this week.

    Delicious!!!! I used parm instead of mozzarella just because it’s what I had handy. This is the best! Sooo quick and so flavourful!

    • Gaby

      all the time! I add shredded brussels sprouts frequently! but it would be great with any veggies

    I thought I would for sure be able to handle this recipe… beginner cook here (and lost a recent bet with my husband). After make the the garlic crack sauce twice, it was still a fail. I think I ended up burning the garlic in the first batch as it was brown and bitter. 30 seconds is no joke. Do you need to make sure to have a really large skillet for that amount of oil? By time I made the second batch, the pasta was cold and the cheese didn’t melt. I’m so bummed. Any tips? Any recipes you recommend where I can’t possibly mess up?

    • Gaby

      Sounds like the oil was too hot and the garlic burned! You could try it with your oil on medium low heat, and add the garlic for 30 seconds until it just starts to become fragrant. Then take it off the heat and carry on with the directions!!

      As far as skillet size, I use a medium skillet. Nothing too large – not needed

    • KatieK

      About your comment that the pasta was cold by the time you finished the sauce: I suggest making the sauce even before you make the pasta. That way, you can add it as soon as the pasta is done. The pasta will be hot and its heat will warm the sauce. 🙂

    I forgot to plan for dinner but then remembered an IG post from a few weeks ago with this in it. Whipped up the garlic crack sauce while my pasta cooked. Quickly reheated some cooked chicken I had from the day before and threw it in with a few black olives. Delish!

    For the Garlic Crack Sauxe
    1 cup olive oil
    10 cloves garlic, finely minced
    1 tsp red pepper flakes
    1-2 teaspoons teaspoons Gaby’s Go To Seasoning
    1 whole lemon, zested

    what’s your “go to” seasoning

    • Gaby

      it’s my seasoning that is carried at Williams Sonoma!

  11. Sandra Kramer

    From Montreal, (Quebec), Canada. No Williams-Sonoma. Could you give an approximation of Gaby’s Go To Seasonings? Sounds like the perfect recipe for a work night or 3:00 a.m. munchies.

    I just want to say that I’m a fan and I bought two of your products, the go to and the seafood. Both are great, but I just think maybe you can improve on the tin for the future… because it’s very hard to open every time and when I get it open it spills a bit. No bad vibes… just want to buy more in the future and would love to see that improved. 🙂

    What a perfect thing to make while social distancing! Soooo garlicky and sooo delicious!

  14. Mary Ann Kisker

    This is a great recipe. Especially for me in self isolation. Unfortunately I am in Uganda and will be here indefinitely as the borders are closed, no passenger flights allowed in. So…. no way I can get hold of your special seasoning and highly doubtful it would get here in mail.

    • Gaby

      Hey Mary Ann! You can use any of your favorite spice blends if you prefer! It will give it a slightly different flavor but 100% will still be delish
