This Week on Carbohydrate Corner: Creamy Garlic Pasta

I see pasta as a neutral background for different sauce variations. Like a canvas, you can get limitless unique results by using your creativity. Sometimes you need to put in effort just to make your sauce rich and delicious, also you get lots of calories; and sometimes it’s luckily easy, healthy and tasty like this very recipe. It’s creamy but it doesn’t contain any cream. It’s sauced but it’s not swimming in the sauce. Plus, it’s only cooking in one pot which means less cleaning for you afterwards.

  • 350 gr pasta (I used shells because they’re cute)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup water (250 ml)

  • Bunch of celery, chopped
