Garlic spaghetti with white wine reduction is a simple meal that will make you feel like you're a gourmet cook. The rule of thumb when cooking with wine is to use one that you like to drink because more often than not you'll be pouring a glass alongside your dinner. This pasta dish is a great base to add in vegetables, shrimp, or even chicken.
2 servings Barilla Plus spaghetti, measured with a spaghetti measure
4 medium-sized garlic cloves (or 2 very large ones), roughly chopped
1/2 tablespoon olive oil
1/3 cup white wine
salt & pepper to taste
1/4 teaspoon butter (or just a very small sliver!)
1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
12 fresh basil leaves, roughly torn
2 teaspoons fresh oregano leaves (discard stems)
freshly shredded Asiago cheese
Stir in the spaghetti.
Mix well & cook for about a minute more.
Remove from heat.
