Garlic & Herbs Pasta with Parmesan Cheese/Garlic Cheese Pasta Recipe/Garlic Cheese Pasta with step by step photos

Today I was in no mood to do an elaborate cooking, so made a very quick and simple garlic and herbs penne pasta with parmesan cheese. Actually the name says it all; it can be made in no time with very less ingredients. I made this pasta and served them with fresh zucchini stir fry. It was an elegant and heavenly Italian lunch which just made our day. My kids love pasta and they got excited and finished them all.

Here’s how to make Garlic & Herbs Pasta with Parmesan Cheese with step by step photos…

4 or 5 finely chopped
Red chilli flakes
¼ tsp
Olive oil
2 tbsp
Italian Mixed Herbs
2 tsp
Parmesan Cheese
½ cup
As needed
Black Pepper Powder
¼ tsp or adjust to taste
Cooking Time: 25 to 30 min                                Recipe Category: Main Course

Heat water in a big pot and bring it to boil. Add pasta, 1 tsp of oil, salt as needed and cook until tender. Drain the water and add some tap water to stop the pasta from cooking further. Drain the cold water also completely and keep the pasta aside.

In a wide pan heat the olive oil, add garlic, red chilli flakes and saute until garlic starts to change color.

Now add the mixed herbs and saute for another 10 sec.

Add the cooked pasta and give a good stir.

Now add the parmesan cheese, black pepper powder on top and mix everything together.

Super quick, delicious and cheesy Pasta is ready to be enjoyed. Serve it hot with some fresh herbs and some more cheese sprinkled on top.

If you wish you can add handful of cherry tomatoes when sautéing, but do not overcook the tomatoes.
  • Alternatively you can add two handfuls of spinach and saute until it wilts and then add the pasta.
