When I first made Garlic Sauce Pasta on insta-stories (way back when) it was 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 tennis club.

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. I've since upped the ante, added my Go-To Seasoning blend for maximum flavor and life is looking pretty good!!

  1. Hi Gabby - Delish! Came together easily and substituted the noodles with Banza chickpea spaghetti. Question what other ways could I use the balance of the garlic oil? So good! Thank you!!

  2. Hi! I cook at an elementary school and I would like to make this for my kiddos. I would need servings for 150…..
    Can you do the math for me? I also work at Williams Sonoma, so I of course have all your seasoning, etc…they are great!!!!!!!
