For the Love of a Garlic Press

Tonight I cooked a pasta dish that I learned from Giada (I still think her recipes are some of the best I have found). I typically avoid making this dish for one sad and superficial reason...I hate when my fingers smell like garlic! It drives me crazy because that stuff lasts. No matter how many times I wash my hands, they hold on to the pungent smell. So tonight I made a major change to my cooking routine. Instead of slicing up the garlic and subjecting my fingers to the lasting scent, I put one clove through a garlic press and PRESTO...just enough garlic, minced and ready to go! (Yes, the little things really do make my day!)
