You like Olive Oil?

Take some plain, dry pasta, linguini, fettucini, spaghetti, whatever you have. Boil til al dente, drain pasta & reserve some of the pasta water. Finely chop 5 or so large cloves of garlic. While pasta is boiling, In a lg skillet, heat 4-6TBSP Extra Virgin olive oil, not so hot as to smoke. lower heat & cook garlic about 3 or 4 min , careful not to brown or burn it. season with salt & fresh pepper. drain pasta, add oil & garlic, toss in a few handfulls of chopped fresh parsley & some chopped, drained, oil-packed sundried tomatoes. Toss in whatever you like, really. Add some of the reserved pasta water to reach desired smoothness. Sprinkle generously with freshly grated parmesan cheese.

So simple. So good. =)

Slice some Italian or French bread into diagonals, drizzle with a little EVOO (extra virgin olive oil) and grill. When toasty, rub each slice with a fresh clove of garlic. Enjoy with that delicious pasta T described!

seed and chop tomatoe's, dice onion fine and mince some fresh garlic, cut up a little fresh basil add a little olive oil and serve on toast. \

Also if you have a Trader Joe's nearby they are the place to buy Olive Oil. It is much cheaper and always good quality.

Or a Kirkland (house brand) at Costco. And pick up a 1 liter bottle of their Balsamic Vinegar, too.
