Today, we have a delightful recipe to share with you. It’s a rich and savory pasta dish that’s perfect for those times when you’re craving something hearty and comforting. Here’s how to make it:
- 500 grams of spaghetti
- 3 tablespoons of oil
- 3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
- 200 grams of thick cream
- 1 cup of chicken broth (we’ll unveil the secret to its perfect preparation in the instructions)
- 200 grams of grated fatty cheese (feel free to choose any type, but ensure it’s a well-dried, fatty variety for the best flavor)
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
- 1 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon of dried thyme, or alternatively, fresh parsley or chives for garnish
- Deli meats (such as ham or kaiser), optional
Method of Preparation:
Start by cooking the spaghetti. Bring a large pot of water to a rolling boil and cook the spaghetti as per the package instructions until it reaches the perfect al dente texture. Once cooked, drain the spaghetti, reserving a cup of the pasta water for later use. Keep the cooked spaghetti warm and do not rinse it.
Next, heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add your choice of deli meats, if using, and the minced garlic. Sauté until the garlic becomes fragrant, which should take about a minute. Add the thyme and nutmeg to the skillet and stir quickly.
Follow this by pouring in the thick cream and chicken broth (if you don’t have chicken broth, a great alternative is a cup of milk mixed with a chicken bouillon cube). Then add half of the reserved pasta water.
Bring this mixture to a gentle boil. Once it starts boiling, introduce the cooked spaghetti into the skillet. Toss everything together until the spaghetti is evenly coated with the creamy sauce.
Remove the skillet from the heat and stir in the grated cheese. This is the moment to season your dish with salt and black pepper to your liking. If the sauce seems too thick, feel free to add a bit more of the reserved pasta cooking water to adjust the consistency.
Serve the pasta immediately while it’s piping hot. Garnish with freshly chopped parsley or chives for a pop of color and freshness. For an extra touch of indulgence, sprinkle a little more grated cheese on top just before serving.
This creamy and savory pasta recipe is not just a meal; it’s a culinary experience. It’s ideal for those evenings when you need a dish that’s both satisfying and full of flavor. The rich creaminess of the sauce, combined with the heartiness of the pasta, makes for a perfect comfort food that’s sure to please everyone at your table. Enjoy your delicious creation!
