"This is for garlic lovers! Tiny pieces of garlic are fried in olive oil and served over pasta, then topped with Parmesan cheese. Don't be scared off by the amount of garlic used, it caramelizes and sweetens as it fries in olive oil. It has become a favorite in my family, including my kids." — IRISHMOM1

This was a tradition in our home. We call it Olio d'oliva e aglio. What my mom did was saute' bread crumbs in a pan and toss the pasta and garlic with this. We also do not separate the garlic from the oil we just toss it all together. Does make a good quick supper or snack.
I figured that I would try this recipe because my husband and I are big garlic lovers. However, if I make this again, I will only use one bulb of garlic because 2 bulbs just made it way to strong. My eyes are still watering and my nose is still running from eating this dish.
Really good as is and even better, this is a perfect recipe to build on. I've used it and added all kinds of everything that I'm in the mood for then and there. Its really good for instance to add ham or bacon and/or peppers and so forth. Whatever you fancy. Thank you, its a great Chameleon of a recipe.
I definitely don't use two cups of olive oil, but I do use quite a bit, as well as a good chunk of butter. When I make it for myself, I just use half a bulb of garlic. I also add a medium tomato, and LOTS of pepper! Basically, this is a good recipe to build on. Don't be afraid of the garlic, it doesn't even taste garlicky.
very good for a side dish. served with chicken and pasta complimented it perfectly.
MMMMM.. SUCH a good recipe! I've made it for all my close fam & friends. I always add a little extra cheese though on it! And yes, the garlic carmalizes into the PERFECT amount! I highly recommend this recipe!!
Loved this & so easy! I halved the reciped for just the two of us. Added a little crushed red pepper, basil and lemon juice right at the end. Love learning a new technique!
I did not care for this recipe....followed the recipe to a tee and was so overbearing. I highly do NOT recommend this dish...even for garlic lovers.
