This pasta dish is so fast, simple and very filling. Great for a weeknight meal when you just want a quick dinner. Makes 1 serving.

3/4 cup rotini pasta
1 clove garlic, minced
2 teaspoons olive oil
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
salt and ground black pepper to taste
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil; add the rotini and cook until al dente, 8 to 10 minutes; drain.
Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Cook the garlic in the hot oil until it begins to brown, 3 to 5 minutes; stir in the parsley and cook another 30 seconds; remove from heat immediately and spoon over the drained pasta; season with salt and pepper. Top with Parmesan cheese.
