Garlic and Breadcrumb Pasta

I saw this recipe floating around Pinterest for quite awhile and finally decided to give it a try. It always sounded really good to me - and it ended up tasting really good as well, so I don't know why I waited so long to make it.

8 ounces of pasta (I used angel hair pasta just cause that's my personal favorite)
6 cloves of garlic (chopped fine)
2 tbs. olive oil
1/2 cup of breadcrumbs
2 and 1/2 tbs. lemon juice
1/4 cup parsley (more/less depending on what you like)

First, cook your pasta as directed on the box.

Next, heat up your oil in a medium size pan. Add your garlic. Cook it for about 5 minutes - just make sure it doesn't burn.

Add your breadcrumbs in with the garlic. Make sure to stir it frequently. You only want to keep it on the heat until it turns a light golden brown color.

Once your pasta is done, you can put it back in the pot or in a bowl to add in the rest of your ingredients.

Toss in the garlic/breadcrumb mixture and then add the lemon juice and parsley. For mine, I used slightly less than 1/4 cup - I just thought the whole 1/4 cup was a little too much parsley! I also tossed in a little extra olive oil as I mixed everything together when I thought it was getting too dry.

Simple, quick and tasty!
