Quick& Easy Garlic&Oil

This quick & easy garlic and oil recipe has minimal ingredients and is a perfect go to recipe when you're in a pinch, or living that nomadic van life. Perfect 2 burner stove top meal.


All of my favorite recipes come about when i’m in a pinch and I work with what I have on deck. What’s an easy and satisfying dish when you’re short on time or tired after a long day? Some yummy pasta with garlic and oil baby! This Easy Garlic and Oil recipe isn’t time consuming and leaves you satisfied. Although I was able to make this meal on a single burner, I recommend using a 2 burner stove top. Whenever I make this meal, the smell fills the air and everyone knows whats up. They get their bowls ready for a serving and chow down. Leaving the table happy and full.
