Garlic Basil Fettucine

8 oz. uncooked Gluten Free Fettucine Pasta (I used Sam Mills Corn Pasta)

1 cup Chopped Fresh Basil Leaves

4 Large Cloves Minced Garlic

1/2 Cup Light Olive Oil (or melted Butter)

Optional 1/2 Cup Chopped Gluten Free Ham or cooked chopped Bacon

1 1/2 Cup Freshly grated Parmesan Cheese

Cook pasta according to package directions less 1 minute and I also add 1 tablespoon of oil or butter to the boiling water before adding pasta. When pasta is done drain and rinse in cool water and drain thoroughly.

In large skillet heat oil until hot then add garlic and basil leaves. Stir and continue to sauté for 2 – 3 minutes on medium high heat or until leaves start to turn a dark green. If you are going to use ham or bacon turn down heat and stir in meat. Then add cooked pasta and 1 cup of cheese. Turn off heat and stir and toss pasta in oil and herbs until completely coated and cheese starts to melt. Serve warm and top with remaining cheese.
