This recipe is from Mark Johnson, an old college friend of Rob's. Mark's technique did not involve any specific measurements so my measurements are rough but should be in the ballpark.

The idea is to slice the garlic cloves evenly so they cook in the oil at the same pace. You want them to be a nice golden color at the end of the cooking time.

Put olive oil in a pan (8" or less) that allows the olive oil to completely submerge the sliced garlic cloves or if not completely submerged make sure you remember to stir so that the olive oil covers the garlic as it cooks.

Add the salt and stir over moderate heat until the garlic is a nice golden color. This takes a good five minutes and it can easily go from golden to burnt if you are not watching what you are doing.

Cook fresh pasta according to pkg. instructions.

Once the garlic is golden remove from heat and pour over drained, cooked pasta.

When you pour the olive oil mixture over the pasta it is not important to transfer every last grain of salt that lags behind as you pour off the garlic and oil because the salt flavor will have infused the oil by this point.

Enjoy!
