While working on my cookbook, I was looking for a recipe to honor my father. Unfortunately, he passed away when I was 11. So I turned to my older siblings to get their memories. This is one dish that got the most discussion. My father would cook on weekends. We had pancakes for breakfast and hamburgers for dinner on Saturdays. On Sundays, it was leftovers or he would BBQ. This easy dish was a BBQ staple. Try it at your next BBQ. Here’s to you, Dad.
8 ounces Elbow Macaroni cooked
2 tablespoons Fresh Garlic, through a garlic press
1/3 cup Olive Oil
Fresh Shredded Parmesan Cheese (Optional)
Fresh Parsley chopped (Optional)
Heat garlic in Olive oil for 3 minutes. Toss pasta with oil & garlic. Serve while hot. Sprinkle with cheese and parsley
