How to Celebrate Garlic Day in 30 Minutes or Less
Garlic has been a lifelong sidekick to pasta. It has a distinct flavor and an undeniable fragrance that is used in all sorts of cuisines from Asian, to Mediterranean, to Italian to French. Best of all, it can be fun to cook with!
A tip to peel garlic like a pro comes from Chef Julia Child. Julia suggests boiling a small pot of water, adding the desired amount of cloves straight from the garlic head, and let simmer for 1 minute. Carefully drain the cloves out of the hot water, and peel once cool enough to touch. Peeling the cloves should be much easier and less messy. Once you have your peeled garlic, you can try these easy Pasta Fits recipes that can be prepared and served in 30 minutes or less!
