Tom's Tortellini with Garlic & Basil

Tom's Tortellini with Garlic & Basil


2 Tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons Extravagonzo Roasted Garlic Infused Olive Oil
2 large cloves garlic, chopped (chop one clove into slivers, the other minced)
2 Tablespoons chopped fresh or frozen basil
1 package tortellini (I like spinach for color and better health)
  Fresh ground pepper
1/4-1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1/4 teaspoon iodized salt

Cooking Instructions

Cook tortellini per instructions on package. Prepare all other ingredients. With 5+/- minutes remaining on the tortellini:

Heat butter and 2 tablespoons Extravagonzo on med/high (not too hot) till frothing upon swirl (not barking and spitting), add crushed red pepper, ground pepper and salt into the oil. Add chopped garlic and sauté until lightly roasted (light brown, NOT crunchy and dark), add basil to roasted garlic and stir for 1/2 minute. Turn off heat and let sit in pan for 1-2 minutes (remove from burner if using an electric stove). When tortellini are done, drain and add garlic mix immediately and finish with remaining Extravagonzo. Mix well, let sit for a couple minutes and serve hot.
