My favorite cheese doing it's thing

Roasted Garlic Ghetto Alfredo

Ghetto Alfredo

I have had an exhausting couple of weeks. First my 14-year-old dachshund, Stewart, hurt his back and had to have emergency spine surgery. His vet was out of town so I had to go out of network (from his “wellness plan”) so he wouldn’t be paralyzed. Three days later there is a Yeti turd clogging up the plumbing somewhere that can’t be found anywhere. I’ve really been ready to lose my mind. I haven’t prepared a real meal in a week! I haven’t been much on appetite either.

How long will this last?

How long will this last?

Then just a few minutes after my friend Kool Kris left I was smacked by the munchies…hard. I recently cleaned my walk-in pantry. I tossed, organized and cleaned for hours. It also helped me take mental inventory. I thought, pasta, butter, pecorino, roasted garlic and 1/2 & 1/2! This is a literal scoop, dump and stir recipe! I didn’t measure. I simply found my ingredients and stirred! You can mix it up if you don’t have this exactly. I just used enough cream to make it creamy. Trust me soggy pasta is no good.

Ingredients (more or less)

Pasta of your choosing-(I used wide egg noodles about a cup)
Pecorino or Parmesean (about 1/3 cup give or take)
1 tbs unsalted butter
2-3 tbs 1/2 & 1/2, milk or cream
Fresh ground pepper

Boil pasta according to type.
Place butter in pasta pot
put pasta on top of butter
toss in cheese and stir while on low heat
add cream slowly just until it smooths out
Crack pepper over and serve!
