Now, on to the recipe. It involves Garlic Gravy. Need I say more?

Pasta with Garlic Gravy and Cherry Tomatoes
Adapted from Goddess of Scrumptious 

1/4 C. unsalted butter
2 TBS. extra virgin olive oil
4-6 large garlic cloves (yeah baby!), finely minced
2 TBS. flour
2 1/2 C. chicken stock
2 TBS. fresh basil (chopped)
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 C. fresh parsley, chopped
1/2 C. grated parmesan cheese
2 C. halved cherry tomatoes

Heat butter and oil in a saute pan over medium heat. Add garlic and saute until soft but not browned. Add flour and cook for one minute. Add chicken stock and simmer until thickened. Stir in tomatoes, basil, salt and pepper. Toss with your favorite kind of hot, cooked pasta. Sprinkle with parsley and voila! You have yourself a delicious dinner that didn't take too much effort along with a wicked case of garlic breath! (My theory on garlic breath is that if everyone has it at, how could it possibly be offensive?)
