Bring 4 quarts of water to a boil over high heat. Season with 1 pasta rock according to package directions. Add pasta and cook to package directions.
Meanwhile in a medium sauté pan heat olive oil over medium low heat and add garlic and dipper. Cooking until garlic is toasted, about 5 minutes.
Using tongs transfer pasta from the pot to the sauté pan. While mixing pasta slowly incorporate parmesan cheese.
Finish with sea salt and serve.
If you don't have pasta rocks on hand it is still important to season your pasta water! Salting the water is the only time the pasta itself is going to be seasoned so make sure your water is salty like the sea. We recommend adding 1 Tbsp of salt for every 4 quarts of water.
