Garlic Lovers Pasta

HHHHHEEELLLLOOO....can you smell me from there? I bet you can. This pasta is garlicky, hence the name. And it is SOOO yummy! Try it, just make sure everyone else eats it too! Adapted from a recipe at www.mommybistro.com

1 lb whole wheat pasta (you can really use any shape pasta, I used fettuccine because it was that or spaghetti)
6 cloves organic garlic, minced
1/2 cup reserved pasta water
8 TB evoo
2 TB dried parsley
1/2-1 ts red pepper flakes
Juice of one lemon
4 ts sea salt
Shredded parmesan (Really excited, our grocery store just started carrying organic!!!)
1/2 ts Ground pepper
Salt to taste

Cook pasta according to directions on package. Use 3 ts of salt in pasta water. While pasta is cooking, heat a skillet over medium heat. Add 4 TB evoo. Add garlic, 1 ts salt, and  ground pepper, and stir often. Cook garlic for a few minutes until it browns just slightly...you DO NOT want to overcook it because garlic gets an awful taste when overcooked. As soon as it browns, remove from heat. Stir in red pepper, lemon juice, 2 TB reserved water, parsley. Drain pasta and place in a large mixing bowl. Toss with 4 TB evoo and remaining reserved water. Add garlic mixture and toss. Divide among bowls and top with parmesan. Add salt to taste. Serve with a caesar salad! Yum!
