Jamie Oliver's Pasta Bianco

Following on from the last post is Jamie Oliver's Pasta Bianco. I wanted a somewhat simple sauce to go with our freshly made pasta so that I could enjoy the pasta itself. This is a really easy recipe which only requires 4 ingredients plus salt and pepper. I would definitely make this again.

2 cloves of garlic, peeled and finely grated
40g butter
455g tagliatelle
2 or 3 handfuls of freshly grated Parmesan cheese
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil and cook the pasta. Meanwhile fry the grated garlic in the butter without colouring it for a couple of minutes and pour into a big bowl. When the pasta is cooked, drain it, but reserve at least 5 to 6 tablespoons of the pasta water.
Add the pasta to the bowl with the garlic oil, add the Parmesan cheese and the pasta water and toss well.
Serves 4

2 to 3 handfuls of Parmesan cheese
