We have a big section on all things garlic in the upcoming issue of The Herb Companion, so I thought I would share one of my favorite garlic recipes here. You probably already know that garlic is great for your health and that it can fight viruses and help prevent cancer. To get the best health benefits, you should try to eat about one raw or lightly cooked garlic clove per day—not too much of a tall order. This delicious pasta dish (a take on the Italian classic aglio e olio) will more than cover your garlic needs for the day.

Pasta with Garlic and Olive Oil
Serves 6

• 1 pound pasta, such as spaghetti or linguini
• 1 teaspoon salt
• 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
• 10 garlic cloves, sliced
• 1/2 cup chopped fresh Italian parsley
• 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper

Prepare pasta according to package directions, then drain and set aside. While pasta cooks, heat oil over medium. Add garlic; cook 2 minutes, stirring constantly (do not it let get too brown). Remove from heat; stir in salt, parsley and pepper. Add pasta; stir well. Serve with Parmesan cheese, if desired.
