If you love pasta, here is a simple and heathier version of one of our favorites, it’s pantry pasta! It can be made in a few minutes with ingredients you probably already have on hand. The garlic is quickly and easily pureed with a garlic press or you can use the Garlic Powder available at our Grocery section.
