Radiatore pasta with Tarragon and asiago cheese
The unusual shape of the pasta holds all the incredible flavor of warm herbs, olive oil and cheese. You can use penne, rigatone or farfalle, but try the radiatore if you haven't used it. You may have to go to an Italian market to find it.

Salt, to taste

6 garlic cloves, very thinly sliced
1/2 teaspoon dried red chili flakes
