You've had Margherita pizza. But have you had Margherita spaghetti? You are going to LOVE this recipe. This is a new twist on an all-time favorite pizza with lots of fresh basil. I think this is one of the best pasta recipes ever. This dish has 3 major elements: the pasta, the veggies/herbs, and the cream sauce.

  • While vegetables cook, melt butter in a saucepan. Add flour and whisk for 2 minutes. Add 1 cup cream and continue to whisk for 1 to 2 minutes. Add salt and pepper. Add remaining cream and stir. Add granulated garlic, thyme, and a squeeze of lemon juice to the sauce.

  • Taste sauce and adjust seasonings if needed. Add cooked vegetables to the sauce, mix well, and simmer over low heat while pasta boils.

  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook angel hair pasta in the boiling water, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, 4 to 5 minutes. Drain.

  • Mix Parmesan cheese and reserved basil together in a bowl.

  • Serve the pasta in a large plate or bowl. Ladle cream sauce over. Top with Parmesan-basil mixture and another squeeze of lemon juice.

This was great! I highly recommend it. The only thing I would change would be to use a little less olive oil. Read More

Delicious. My family enjoyed this with some chicken I just dipped in milk and plain bread crumbs and pan fried. I mixed most of sauce in Spaghetti and added 1/2 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese in the sauce. Then I placed cooked chicken on spaghetti and topped chicken with remaining sauce. Then garnished with more finely grated Parmesan cheese. Read More
