This sounds harder and more complicated than it actually is. The only part of the whole thing that was a bit difficult was finding the correct pan. I ended up using the Wok because it was easier to stir and could fit everything in it. I also changed the recipe to Lactaid milk instead of regular milk for the lactose indolent in my family. If you enjoy garlic, you will love this! I also used some more pasta than 8oz of pasta. It was really delicious. Best meal of the week!
