Bowtie Pasta with Tomatoes and Ground Beef

Egyptians worshiped garlic and placed clay models of garlic bulbs in the tomb of Tutankhamen. Garlic was so highly prized; it was even used as currency. Folklore holds that garlic repelled vampires, protect against the Evil Eye, and rid off jealous nymphs said to terrorize pregnant women and engaged maidens. And let us not forget to mention the alleged aphrodisiacal powers of garlic which have been extolled through the ages.

Surprisingly, garlic was frowned upon by foodie snobs in the United States until the first quarter of the twentieth century, being found almost exclusively in ethnic dishes in working class neighborhoods. By 1940, America had embraced garlic, finally recognizing its value as not only a minor seasoning, but as a major ingredient in recipes.

Today, Americans alone consume more than 250 million pounds of garlic annually.
