~ allrecipes

1/2 c. olive oil
10 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. crushed red pepper flakes
3 T. chopped fresh parsley
1 lb. penne pasta
1/3 c. grated Romano cheese

Cook pasta according to directions. In a pan, brown garlic in oil. Add salt, pepper and parsley; remove from heat. Toss pasta with garlic mixture and Romano cheese.

Notes: I double the garlic and have people put the cheese on their own portion, rather than adding it to the pot. After reading some of the reviews on allrecipes, I sometimes add a pound of chopped kielbasa to this dish, cooking it with the garlic, and skip the salt entirely. Simple, but tasty!

While this was still on the stove, my husband came in to the kitchen, looked in the pot, and said, "Why have you never made this before?!" While eating, he used words like "awesome" and "incredibly tasty" and "you can make this again." I did make it with kielbasa, and it will definitely be added to our meal rotation.
