  • 2 oz cheese
  • 3 tsp oil
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 0.3 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 6 oz cream cheese
  • 8 oz pasta
  • Step 1

    In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta according to package directions until al dente.

    Step 2

    Right before draining, reserve a cup of starchy pasta water.

    Step 3

    Meanwhile, in a large skillet warm 1 Tbsp of olive oil and gently fry the garlic (plus a good pinch of chili flakes if you like) for 2-3 minutes. Use a low flame, do not let the garlic burn.

    Step 4

    Then stir the cream cheese and about 1/2 cup of starchy pasta water. Stir to combine oil, cream cheese, water and create a nice and creamy emulsion. Add parmesan cheese and stir well. Your pasta sauce is ready.

    Step 5

    Drain and add your pasta to the skillet. Stir well to evenly coat the pasta in the sauce, add more cooking water as needed for a smooth and creamy consistency.

    Step 6

    Serve immediately with a drizzle of good olive oil or extra virgin olive oil, freshly grated parmesan, and freshly ground black pepper (if you don't use chili flakes). Enjoy!
