BEST Creamy Gochujang Pasta

ready in 20 minutes!

Step 1: Gather all of the ingredients for this gochujang pasta. It's best to choose pasta that has a rough exterior.

Step 2: Fill a pot with water and season with salt. Boil the pasta for 1 minute shy from what the packaging says, until al dente.

Step 3: In the same pot, melt the butter over medium heat. Once it starts to sizzle, add the minced garlic and cook for 30 seconds.

Step 4: Add gochujang paste and stir. Toast the paste for 1-2 minutes, or until it darkens in color and caramelizes a little bit.

Step 5: Then, add the heavy cream and pasta water. Stir until the sauce is creamy and smooth. Add salt and black pepper.

Step 6: Add the cooked pasta to the creamy sauce, alongside the grated parmesan cheese. Turn the heat to low.

Step 7: Cook until the sauce has thickened and the pasta is well coated,  stirring often, about 1-2 minutes.

Step 8: Remove from the heat and give it a taste test. Add more salt or black pepper if needed. Serve right away!
