Linguine with Garlic and 'Cheese'

I used whole wheat linguine (from Gia Russa) for this simple pasta dish, but you can use regular linguine as well.

Cook 8 ounces of linguine according to package directions; drain and set aside.

While the pasta cooks, heat 1 and 1/2 tablespoons olive oil in a saucepan over low heat. Add 3 minced garlic cloves and cook for 5 minutes - the original recipe said to stir constantly, but I probably stirred closer to "frequently."

Remove the pan from heat and add the cooked pasta, along with 3/4 cup shredded vegan cheese in place of Parmesan (such as the vegan mozzarella from Galaxy Foods), 1/4 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. black pepper; toss well to coat.

1 cup of pasta is 340 calories.

Cost:
linguine $3.49
garlic $0.75
vegan cheese $3.39

Thanks so much for reading! Roasting the garlic sounds like a great idea, so I'll be sure to try it out :)
