Step 1: Following the package directions, cook the pasta until al dente. Drain when done and place the drained pasta back into the pan on the stovetop over medium heat.
Step 2: Drizzle with oil and add garlic. Cook for about 3 to 4 minutes or until the garlic begins to brown and be aromatic.
Step 3: To the pan, add the cream cheese, stirring constantly for about 3 to 4 minutes as it heats until the cream cheese has melted. Then, stir in the Parmesan cheese along with the heavy cream and pasta water. Toss to coat the pasta.
Step 4: Serve the Parmesan Garlic Linguine immediately garnished with grated Parmesan cheese, flaky or coarse sea salt, and freshly ground pepper. Enjoy!
