Garlic Parmesan Pasta

I love love love pasta, but it sure doesn't love love love my waistline! What I love most about this pasta dish is that I can enjoy it with the guilt since it's made with high fiber/low cal pasta. It's so easy to prepare and you can't tell it's low calorie. A win/win in my book!

Garlic Parmesan Pasta
Serves 6
Cal 246, Carbs 41.3, Fat 10.3, Fiber 6.5, Protein 10.3

12 oz pkg thin spaghetti (I used Creamette 150)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. red pepper flakes
1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese

In a large saucepan heat olive oil over low heat. Add in garlic and saute about one minute or until golden brown. Add in the red pepper flake and salt. Remove from heat.

Meanwhile cook pasta to al dente. Once cooked pour garlic mixture over hot pasta and coat well. Add in parmesan cheese. Top with fresh chopped parsley or basil if desired. Enjoy!
