"This is a very flavorful dish that my brothers named Death By Garlic. Warning: If one person has this, you'd better all have some! Beautiful flavor and zest. (I like to brown kielbasa sausage and toss it in, then sprinkle feta cheese on top. Yum!)" — Terry Stirling

crushed red pepper flakes
chopped fresh parsley
dry penne pasta
grated Romano cheese
I love garlic and I love this dish! One of my favorite things about this recipe is that it can be tailored to what leftovers you have in your fridge. I throw in roasted chicken, sausage, or salmon, depending on what I have (although the sausage is definitely the best!), and I always add brocoli also. I usually use parm instead of Romano only because it is what I typically have on hand. Thank you for the great recipe!
This was good but needed much more cheese than the recipe calls for. Next time I will add meat and/or veggies because I did feel it was missing something. Great base recipe though!
I make this very often because we're big garlic fans and my family also loves their pasta. I don't use as much olive oil and we prefer using blanched and stir fryed broccoli instead of meat. Healthy and delicious!
This recipe is completely awesome! Loved it! I grilled up some chicken with lots of red pepper, I thought the spicy chicken went really well with the garlicy pasta!! Yummo!!
First, I usually divide this into 8 servings instead of 4. Second, as a gardener, I love this. I add what ever is coming out of the garden or leftovers from last night's salad and it is good everytime. add any herbs you have growing and it works too.
I used shredded spaghetti squash instead of pasta for this dish and cut the recipe in half for one whole squash. I added smoked sausage, but didn't have any cheese. It was WONDERFUL! My husband had three helpings. I can't wait to try it with cheese. If you decide to use spaghetti squash, you may want to use less oil. It seems like the squash soaks it up and it can get kind of greasy.
I took this to a dinner party and it was a huge hit! I used 2/3 cup cheese instead of 1/3, and 11 cloves of garlic instead of 10. I made it the original way a few nights before and it was too bland. Try grating some extra romano and sprinkle it over the pasta!
This is our FAVORITE dish. Although, without the kielbasa, it isn't nearly as good. We use more than the 10 cloves, and it's wonderful. Try different pasta shapes - the garlic sticks well to rotini or farfalle pasta. Thank you for the BEST recipe!
