Whole wheat linguine with creamy sauce and peas

Ingredients:
3/4 pounds whole wheat linguine
1 cup of frozen peas
3 cloves garlic, crushed
2 TBS butter
1 TBS olive oil
2 tsp italian seasoning
several shakes of red pepper flakes
3 TBS fresh chopped parsley
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/4 of a block of cream cheese
1/4 cup half and half
salt and pepper

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook till al dente. Add the frozen peas at the end of the pasta’s cooking time just to heat them up a little. Meanwhile, heat up butter and oil in a large pan over medium low heat. Add the garlic, italian seasoning and pepper flakes and slowly brown the garlic. Drain the pasta and peas and add directly to large pan. Turn up the heat, add all the other ingredients and toss till pasta is fully coated.
