CREAMY GARLIC PASTA

CREAMY GARLIC PASTA RECIPE
I found this recipe over at my friend’s food blog Buns In The Oven – I highly suggest Karly’s blog – I changed up the recipe a little bit – I ended up using gluten free pasta so I could enjoy the dish for lunch today — I am currently on my second helping ( LOVE IT )
What I like about this dish is that it is full of flavor — it is very much like an Alfredo but lighter and it was very simple to make gluten free ( which I love)
You can use any type of pasta you would like ( except the filled pastas) next time I make this dish I am going to use penne ( I am a HUGE penne fan)
This is everything you will need  I did not add a ton of garlic – just enough for a little taste — if you are a HUGE garlic fan feel free to add a ton more – if you follow my instructions it will just be a hint
This recipe makes enough for 6 for dinner
I suggest serving this meal with a nice salad  When I make this dish again I will be adding a pint of cherry tomatoes – I really think the acid in the tomatoes will interact well with the creaminess from the heavy cream

What is your favorite type of pasta dish I really love a nice mac and cheese  I would love suggestions on other pasta dishes I should make 
One big change in this recipe is that I did not use chicken stock — feel free to change out the water for chicken stock
