Creamy Garlic Pasta

I get a lot of requests for one pot dishes. That can be a tall order to fill sometimes, because so many recipes have many different steps that most of the time require a lot of dishes, pans, and pots. Summer is here now and we all want to be outside enjoying the beautiful weather, not slaving over a hot stove/oven in a stuffy house.
I found a recipe winner for you! I was cruising Pinterest one afternoon – like I do almost daily – and my attention was grabbed by the title of a garlic pasta. You all know how much I love garlic. The more the better. So if you are not a garlic lover…I’m sorry, but you will NOT like this dish at all. I have a suggestion for ya though – learn to love garlic! It’s amazing!
Not only does this dish promise a creamy delicious garlic flavor, but it’s a breeze to make. I’m talking like 20 minutes start to finish cooking time. The noodles get infused with a garlicky chicken flavor from the very beginning and then it’s finished with a blast of cheese and a splash of cream and the end result is just a decadent pasta dish that tastes like something you would’ve ordered from your favorite Italian restaurant.
