Spaghetti with garlic cream sauce

I love a good pasta and of course I love garlic. This time I wasn't in the mood for a tomato based sauce, so I decided to make a cream based sauce.
1 sticks butter
6 cloves garlic, finely minced
1 pint heavy cream
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 pound spaghetti cooked al dente
Parmesan cheese (my parmesan cheese was so delicious, I went to the St. Lawrence Market and bought it from Alex Cheese, they grated it for me and it just tastes so good)

Melt butter over medium-low heat. Add garlic but be careful not to brown it. When garlic is cooked stir in heavy cream.
When it is boiling, reduce heat and let sauce barely simmer for about 15 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve over hot cooked spaghetti and sprinkle with parmesan cheese.

Mmmh, delicious!
