Step 1

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.

Add the fettuccine, and cook until the pasta is al dente, 6 to 8 minutes.

Step 4

While the pasta is cooking, heat the olive oil over medium heat in a large nonstick saute pan.

Step 5

Add the garlic cloves and saute them very gently, turning often for 4 minutes, until light golden brown and softened.

Step 6

Remove the garlic cloves from the pan, and reserve.

Step 7

Add the drained pasta to the pan, and saute over medium heat for 2 minutes, until warmed through.

Step 8

Add the browned garlic cloves, Parmesan cheese, parsley, lemon pepper, and seasoning salt, and toss the pasta well to combine.

We enjoyed this simple dish. I added a bunch of asparagus (the skinny kind) and more cheese but otherwise made as directed. Thanks for sharing!

I prepared this as written in the recipe, and it's a great pasta dish. I had it for a quick lunch, served with some garlic bread. I doubled the lemon pepper and it still needed a bit more seasoning. Next time I think I'll trying adding a bit of red peppers (for a little splash of color) and boost the parsley a bit. But it's a great dish that I know I'll make frequently. Thanks, TeresaS.

Love, love, love this recipe. It was delicious. I added a little hot peppers on top, for color and because we love spicy food. (aglio olio e peperoncino)
