For the pasta

Bring a pot of lightly salted water to a boil and cook the gluten-free penne. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add minced garlic cloves and sauté them lightly for about a minute, being careful not to burn them. Add Philadelphia cream cheese to the skillet and mix well until it becomes creamy and well blended with the garlic. At this point, drain the pasta, adjust seasoning with salt to your taste. Pour the cooked penne into the skillet with the Philadelphia cream, gently mixing the ingredients. Next, add the grated cheese and almonds to the pasta, stirring well to distribute them evenly. Continue cooking the pasta for a few minutes so that all the ingredients blend together and the cheese melts slightly. Once ready, turn off the heat and transfer the pasta to a serving dish. Garnish with a sprig of fresh rosemary and additional almonds if desired. Serve hot and enjoy this delicious creamy pasta with its unique flavor!
