Rosemary Pasta in Roasted Garlic Sauce
My mother has been making this dish for as long as I can remember. Lots of rosemary and garlic - what more could you ask for?

I went out to the garden to get fresh rosemary. This is the first time I have planted it or used it in a recipe. I must admit, when chopping, it is very fragrant. I must admit, I really loved this dish. I did use Bow Tie pasta also. If your onions didn't turn out you may have under-cooked them. If your cheese clumped or got stringy, you didn't stir it in fast enough. Also, adding the cheese should be done after pulling off the heat.Read More
I went out to the garden to get fresh rosemary. This is the first time I have planted it or used it in a recipe. I must admit, when chopping, it is very fragrant.

This was FANTASTIC. I followed the recipie but used soy butter instead of real butter(my daughter has food allergies), dried rosemary instead of fresh and bow tie pasta. When I was making the sauce I thought I may have used too much garlic and then I thought the sauce would be too runny but when I mixed it with the pasta, everything was perfect! NO LEFTOVERS!!!
I loved this! Easy to make a lot of it at once and very tasty. My boyfriend and his roommate really liked it! I used dried rosemary though and would use fresh next time. I also added some fresh oregano and parsley. If you wanted to make a lighter version, I felt the last two tablespoons of butter were unnecessary as the mixture of onions and stuff was enough to fully coat the spaghetti. I'll try wil olive oil next time too.
Definitely tasty and easy to make! I prepared as written with two additions: 1.)I added about 1.5 lbs chicken breast. I diced it and rubbed it with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. I added the chicken with the stock and rosemary. 2.) I added about a tablespoon of lemon juice as the sauce was reducing, which really rounded out the flavor! The dish was very rich and enjoyable, but I would agree that it doesn't translate well to leftovers, so make it when it can all be eaten in one sitting.
This recipe was a huge hit! My friends said it was restaurant quality! I did change a few things thought. I used garlic powder instead of cloves and it turned out fine. I also added chicken. I cut it up into bite sized pieces and cooked it most of the way through, then added it when I added the chicken broth (I used canned Swansons-I'm such a cheater!)
This is a very simple, delicious recipe. Tastes great with added sauteed mushrooms and topped with fresh diced tomatoes.
This is good but I felt it needed something. So I added lemon zest and lemon juice. That is what it needed. Delicious! Garlic, Rosemary and Lemon...yummy!
This was good, but not fantastically good. I added an extra clove of garlic, halved grape tomatoes, and a splash of white wine. Quick and easy, great rosemary taste. I'd make it again, and judging by my husband's FOUR servings, he'd like it again.
Not only does it taste good, but it smells amazing while cooking. My husband's band member's kept commenting on the good smells coming from the kitchen. One tip though, only make what you can eat in one sitting. The pasta dries out quite quickly, which bothered me when eating as leftovers..
This was very good, however I don't recommend halfing the complete recipe. I did, and ended up having to add more broth because it completely disappeared. Thank you for sharing, this is a keeper!
HMMMMM. Fantastic. I added broccoli, artichoke hearts and baby bella mushrooms. Seasoned with Mrs. Dash Garlic and Herb. Used Barilla Plus elbows instead of spaghetti. Served with roasted pork tenderloin. Dad ate Three Helpings! Glad I could make his tummy happy after coming over to help me with chores. Next time I need to make sure to grate the Parmesan finer, the larger grate (from the salad shooter) ended up clumping together somewhat.
I know everyone hates when you change a recipe and review it, so I will review the sauce first. The sauce is so good on pasta. so what I did to make this a hearty meal, first I cut 3 bonless chicken breat halves into strips, then coated them in seasoned flour and cooked them in a skillet with olive oil. I boiled a pot of water and used ziti instead of spaghetti, I cooked some fresh broccoli in the same pot at thesame time the ziti was cooking. when everything was done, I mixed it all together. Yumm! beats any restaurant chicken broccoli ziti dish!
We did not like this. I followed the directions exactly, but I think the amount of rosemary was too much!
Absolutely wonderful! Two tips, do NOT use dried rosemary, I did the first time I made this it was not nearly as good. And don't use a garlic press definitely chop the garlic.
The most delicious pasta ~ i know I will be making this again and again. I did not have any rosemary either fresh or dried so I used Italian herbs. Followed the rest of recipe exactly. Turned out perfect, I served this with the Slow cooker Chicken Stroganoff off this site.
Delicous recipe and easy to make! I added clams and scallops to make it into a seafood dish!
This recipe was a huge hit when I cooked it for my family. Everyone was so tired of the old Pasta and Tomato sauce. I'm glad I tried this recipe. It is one of my favorites! I recommend this recipe to anyone looking to spice up their pasta dishes.
I heeded the warnings from other reviewers about blandness and so used the full amount of rosemary. I love rosemary, but this was way too much. Not only was the taste overpowering, but it affected the texture as well! I used 3/4 cup chicken stock plus 1/4 cup white wine as well as a splash of lemon juice and the sauce taste was good, notwithstanding the rosemary!
yummy, added juice of one lemon, and I think pine nuts would taste good too.
Okay I thought I was at Brio! This was easy and super quick. I didn't have the rosemary so I used dried thyme, basil and sage. I also made sauteed chicken breast, as my husband is a meat eater. He loved it and so did my 3 year old son. I could have easily had this alone as a meal. I gave this five stars because it was quick and delicious! I will make this over and over!
Based on all the excellent reviews, I was expecting so much more from this dish. It was just good, as in good for the family, but I'd go with something else for a "company worthy" meal.
This was excellent and rated by my wife as a definite "do again"! The only variation from the recipe I made was to use 1 tsp SuperiorTaste's "Better than Bullion" chicken stock paste with a cup of water from the pasta when it was about half way done to make the stock. This is a little trick I learned that makes the sauce better adhere to the pasta. Great Recipe!
Sorry, 4 of us thought this was boring and would not want again. Followed this recipe exactly.
This could very well be a great dish, however, the picture is not at all appetizing.....If it comes out looking like this, I don't want it.
As the recipe submitter, I would like to point out that the amount of pasta called for in this recipe is incorrect. The correct amount is 8 oz, not 16. Try it with half the amount - I'm sure you will love it as much as we do.
I made 1/2 the recipe because it's only me. I pretty much followed as written (1/2 portion) except I added some precooked shrimp and blanched asparagus. Well it was an OMG meal! I love rosemary but usually with chicken or roasted vegetables and I wasn't sure I would like it in a pasta dish--well not only did I like it, I could not stop eating it! It will now forever compete with my favorite penne pasta pesto dishes! Thanks for posting!
This dish was SO easy to make and SO yummy to eat! It a huge hit with my fiance and he is incredibly picky. I added a splash of lemon juice to the sauce and it gave it a nice, refreshing twist. This recipe will become a regular in my house!
if you like Olive Garden's chicken scampy dish try this: cook marinated chunked chicken breast (2 breasts) in skillet until brown. set aside. make this sauce as directed in the same pan the chicken was in but instead of rosemary use a teeny tiny pinch of basil. just before you take the sauce off the stove toss in about 1/4 to 1/3 of a green pepper sliced in 1 in slices and your chicken. cook for a couple minutes to tenderize the peppers and then put on your pasta and toss together. SO GOOD!!!
I love this recipe. Yes, I did add a little more garlic. I did heed the warnings about less rosemary, about 1/2 a tsp. I added some salt and pepper with chicken. And it definately good!
Good and easy. I like the idea of replacing the butter with soy sauce, I'll try it next time.
This was really good. I used whole wheat pasta, used only about a TBSP. of fresh rosemary, should diffently use 2 TBSP. I'll diffently make this again.
This was great, and quick and easy. I didn't find the 2 Tablespoons of rosemary overwhelming, the only reason I'm giving it four stars is because it could have done with a tablespoon or two less butter, it started to get a little greasy.
This is awesome and EASY!!!!
This was a wonderful recipe! I used rosemary straigt from my garden and added chicken and it turned out great. My dad, who doesn't even like spagghetti had thirds! Everybody in my family loved it. I would suggest turning the heat up to medium when cooking the onion since they don't brown at low heat.
I love this recipe; it's a great base. I'm usually only cooking for myself so I halve the recipe, use vegetable stock instead of chicken to make it vegetarian, and add a little lemon juice to the sauce. Lovely and easy.
I was looking for a side-dish noodle recipe and this one is great. I followed it exactly except that I used bow-tie noodles because that is what I had on hand. Thank you!
Not a hit at our house. The fresh rosemary made the sauce really bitter.
Simple and delicious. We used fresh Rosemary pasta and added chicken and broccoli as suggested by others. Did not have to deal with the rosemary amount (that others speak about being too much). I added very little since I had the Rosemary flavored fresh pasta.
This dish is wonderful. It is very easy to make and the ingredients are things we always have on hand. We have added chicken and that is delicious too. Great as a side dish or a meal.
Great flavor. 16 oz of spaghetti is way too much. Next time will add chicken to give it a little more substance as a main dish.
This is a great dish. I added broccoli and mushrooms to make it a meal and my family loved it. Other than the veggies, I didn't change a thing.
This is exactly what I was looking for! I added some fresh basil and quartered cherry tomatoes at the end to give it color and mixed it with cooked cheese tortellini. My hubby and I loved it! It was even better the next day because all the sauce soaked into the pasta.
not enough sauce and taste. had to add extra cheese.
Great flavor! I strained the sauce before adding the pasta to hide the onions from my picky husband and he loved it! Quick and easy, will definitely make again.
I LOVED this, and I am a bit surprised by my own reaction because I usually don't like pastas like this without tomato sauce. But it has a great combination of flavors--LOVE the rosemary. I'd argue that it could use some more garlic, but I tend to want more garlic than called for in recipes anyway. I subbed mozzarella for parmesan bc I don't have parmesan right now--but I think it would be a great addition. Quick, easy, and excellent. Thanks!
I won't be making this again. Knowing that people can be quite critical, I decided to try it based on the majority, but I'm sorry that I did. I always try to be kind with my reviews, but I just can't with this one.
This was soooooo good! My kids loved it too! So good to have spaghetti with something different! Thanks!
I cut down the recipe to 4 for my boyfriend and I (so we could have leftovers) and there's NOTHING I would change about this. Well, I did add oregano...but you don't have too. We just like it. This was beyond delicious.
I made this recipe just the way it was written and I have to disagree with others. No one in my family thought this was a good dish and my husband was the only one who even finished what was on his plate.
This was good but too much rosemary. I'm going to cut it in half next time!
This recipe is so tasty, and so easy to make. It's a good recipe for when the pantry is nearly empty, as it takes so few and simple ingredients. Ever since I found it here, I make it about once a week. My husband loves it too!
Fabulous! I couldn't stop eating this! The only problem I had was that I let the sauce reduce too much. I will certainly make this again!
This was good but needed a lot of added seasoning...salt and pepper and definately more garlic. I used less rosemary as someone stated we should do...but if you like bold and strong flavors as I do...LEAVE IT IN!!!
These are absolutely wonderful! I used wide egg noodles instead. Wonderful if you like garlic. Five Stars!
This was just OK. I used vegetable broth instead of chicken stock to make it vegetarian, and I also had to omit the rosemary since I didn't have any. The dish looked very blah. I added some cut tomatoes on top for some color, and I wished I'd had some broccoli or something. We couldn't even taste the garlic. The only flavor came from the cheese. Next time, I'll quadruple the garlic.
This was lovely. Simple ingredients, easy, and delicious. Comfort food with style!
I added roasted garlic along with all the other good stuff,and it just gave it an even garlickier taste, which we loved. I also added some lemon juice as another reviewer suggested. Really Really good.
I scaled this down to 2 servings & Mandy Sue is right...if you scale it down, you will need more chicken broth than called for. For 2 servings, it called for 1/4 cup of broth & I used 1 full cup. I used roasted garlic (didn't add it until I added the broth & rosemary) & I just added sphaghetti until it was enough. This tasted very strongly of carmelized onions so if you don't love those (I do) then this dish is not for you. Topped it w/ additional parmesan. Thansk for a tasty lunch kelcampbell!
Loved this recipe, we were in Mexico and cooking for ourselves, but it is difficult to find familiar ingredients! this recipe fit the bill as we could get everything we needed at the local market. I can't wait to make it at home now!
Good. I added baby carrots to mine since I thought it would be too bland without anything else. Turned out just fine :)
My family just didn't care for this Pasta. I was surprised at the taste. It spelled so good cooking.
I used dried rosemary, but next time will try fresh. I replaced half the butter with olive oil. Served with Sweet Potato Gnocchi from this site and it was a great combo.
This was really easy to do and tasted amazing. It's nice for a change instead of tomato sauce.
This was simple but went nicely with Chicken Marsala for a dinner party. It's a nice alternative to plain pasta.
This was an OK side dish. A change from the buttered noodles, but not so different that kids won't eat it. I liked the rosemary flavor. There are better pasta recipes out there though.
As I was making this, I thought it was going to turn out bland. WRONG! It popped with flavor. It DOES, however, need fish or veggies of some sort. I think next time I'll try it either with scallops or green peppers. Oh, and it's incredibly easy to make!
This was great. I used shells instead of spaghetti and cut the rosemary down to about half, (it can get to be too much for us), and it turned out awesome. My kids loved it and were asking to eat up the leftovers the next day.
I was looking for a recipe to mock the premade pasta combos you buy in the frozen food section. This is as close as I could find and it was delicious! I added frozen california blend veggies and my toddlers gobbled it up!
Instead of chicken stock, I used white wine and added some extra garlic. My onions had gone bad so I had to use some minced onion and this recipe was still awesome.
Really great flavor - really enjoyed this dish even though I'm not a fan of onions. Great over lingunie with some mushrooms! Tastes like something you get at a restaurant. Thanks for sharing!
This was really good. I thought it would've been more 'saucy' though. Even my picky eaters liked this one!!! Thanks!
I used this recipe in a pinch. This was good, not great. Its missing something. Maybe a few red pepper flakes.
The rosemary was overpowering. I might try making it again with a lot less rosemary.
I don't cook with Rosemary often so I was suprised at how strong the flavor was. I found it very overpowering. I also didn't think the onions "meshed" well with the dish. It may have been b/c I used white onion but I probably woudn't make this again. It reminded me a bit of Mizithra noodles if you like those then you would like this recipe.
Oh my goodness, this was simply amazing!!!! My family devoured it and everyone was begging to be the one to lick the spoon.
This was good. During cooking I realised I didn't have any chicken stock so I used vegetable stock instead. Husband loved it (I added some prawns for him), my toddler and I had it plain. I thought it was just okay - a good base but needs something more. My toddler GOBBLED it up and asked for more and he never asks for more!!!
I love this recipe! It’s easy and tasty
Really good. Other than adjusting the recipe for only 2 servings, I used dried rosemary. I added the rosemary to the frying pan before the chicken stock till it got fragrant. That helps with the flavor of a dried herb. Will make again.
This stuff is amazing! It's good with whole wheat pasta, too. Make sure you don't use too much pasta, and use a bit less of whole wheat to let the flavor come through.
This dish was excellent, and my husband loved it too! My stovetop tends to run a little hotter, so the only thing I will change next time is to start the pasta a little earlier, so as not to overdo the time on the sauce. Thank you for posting such a wonderful recipe!
Really good. A nice change of pace from pasta with red sauce, and it uses simple ingredients that I keep on hand. A keeper.
Great as a side! In order to make it a meal I sauteed some chicken in butter and onion powder, steamed some broccoli and carrots, and tossed it all into the pasta. I made this for the in-laws and they devoured it.
Add some chicken chunks and this is a full blown meal. LOVED IT!
Whew, too much rosemary for me! It was okay, I guess, but I probably won't make it again.
this was good. i wish i had added more garlic. i made mine with spaghetti squash and the sweetness of the squash went great with the rosemary. this is a great fall dish.
Would definitely make again...followed the recipe to a T except for using less pasta.
To die for, great recipe if you like onions and garlic!
This a great alternative to a red sauce. As suggested I used it as a side for chicken marsala and it complimented it very well. Chicken Marsala is a stronger tasting dish and this being a bit more mild worked very well. Next I think I will increase the sauce by about a quarter but other than that wouldn't change a thing.
We really like garlic, so I used about 14 cloves. Very glad I did, because I don't think the flavor would have been strong enough without the extra. This was so simple to prepare, using things I always have on hand. Very tasty and satisfying.
This was a great alternative to our normal tomato or garlic oil sauce. I used scallions in place of onions and bowtie pasta. The pasta held the sauce wonderfully! Also instead of shredding the cheese I food processed it so it was chopped into small chunks rather than fine shreds.
I thought this was very good. The rosemary was a bit much but other than that I ate it all.
This is a keeper! I wanted a hardy side dish to go with steak so I added portabello mushrooms sliced fairly thick,and fresh broccoli in very small pieces. I incorporated these after doing the onion and garlic. We like onion so I used red onion and didn't slice it real tiny. I substituted 1/4 of the chicken stock with white wine which I added a few minutes before the chicken stock. I used whole wheat rotini instead of spagetti. The flavor was amazing and it was a great compliment to the steaks.
This is a good base recipe and an excellent use of rosemary. Just add whatever veggies you're in the mood for, serve with a green salad, and you've got yourself a good weeknight dinner. I do agree with one reviewer's take on the leftovers, though. Either eat all of this in one sitting, or be prepared to add some olive oil when you reheat the leftovers.
I am not a picky eater, generally I enjoy almost any food, but I can't agree with the other reviews for this recipe. I followed the recipe exactly as it is written and my onions did not brown at all, it was VERY greasy and the parmesan cheese just got lumpy. I also think that there was way too much pasta for the amount of sauce that it made. Maybe with some tweaking it could be a good meal, but I'm not sure.
The sauce really needs the roasted garlic advertised in the recipe title. Adding a bulb of roasted garlic saved this dish for us, but I'm only giving 2 stars for the recipe as written.
i absolutely loved this dish! The rosemary was a great change. it was nice and light, perfect to pair with stuffed chicken.
I didn't put as much rosemary as the recipe called for, I probably could have though.. It was good, I would have preferred it to be a little thicker however.. I also added sundried tomatoes! YUMMY!
We made this as written and I'm taking it out of my recipe box. The bland taste was only slightly masked by the bitterness from the rosemary. Our parrots love pasta and they wouldn't even eat it. They tossed it on the floor for the dogs to eat!
This is a delicious dish! The only thing I changed was using olive oil instead of butter. Super tasty. Super simple. I will be making this again.
