I’m not saying that this is healthy, but does it matter when it’s delicious and it takes 15 minutes to make?  (Don’t answer that.)  Here’s my go-to quick and creamy pasta dish.

1 block cream cheese, cubed

4 Tbsp butter

1/2 cup parmesan

1/2 cup milk (give or take)

S&P to taste

2 cloves garlic, diced finely or shredded

Melt the butter in a saucepan on medium heat, throw in the garlic, and give it a quick stir before putting in the cubes of cream cheese.  Whisk it until the cream cheese is entirely melted and the butter is incorporated.  Stir in parmesan cheese and enough milk to bring the sauce to the consistency that you like for your pasta.  Season it to taste with salt and pepper.  Add red pepper flakes (and maybe up the garlic cloves to 3) if you want it to be spicy.
