1/2 lb. pasta of your choice
4 cloves garlic, chopped, sliced or mashed
6 T. olive oil
Begin to bring your water for cooking pasta to a boil. Chop, slice or mash your garlic depending on the strength of garlic flavor you prefer. The smaller the pieces of garlic, the stronger the flavor. Heat olive oil in a small pan and add garlic. Cook garlic and oil over low heat, stirring and watching carefully; do not overcook! Cook pasta in boiling salted water until al dente. Drain and toss with oil and garlic.
