It takes a lot to overdo garlic. Use a generous teaspoon when measuring the equivalencies.
The same amount of onion can replace garlic in any dish.
If using garlic salt, reduce the amount of regular salt in your dish to avoid an over salted dish.

My wife can no longer eat tomatoes or garlic due to health reasons, and we really love our pasta and spaghetti. What are good replacements for these in spaghetti sauces and for ketchup?
I had to give up tomatoes when I was having gall bladder issues. I would toss broccoli and a little butter (very little) into pasta. Mushrooms also were good in pasta--do a light saute in a very little olive oil and toss with pasta. If she can tolerate cheese a little parm cheese adds flavor. Duck sauce and plum sauce from the ethnic aisle at the store are good in many places where I used to use ketchup. Sending up healing prayers!
My grandchildren won't eat tomato sauce of any kind. I normally have to make a pesto sauce and when I do this I use some chicken bouillon to make the pesto thinner.
"Drizzle cooked pasta with olive oil and sprinkle with fresh oregano and basil. This meal is high in heart-healthy unsaturated fat. Roast a variety of vegetables, such as zucchini, onions, carrots and broccoli, and toss with cooked pasta as an alternative to pureed tomato sauces. Combine cooked pasta with low-fat ricotta or cottage cheese and fresh vegetables, such as sauteed asparagus, as another healthy alternative to traditional pasta sauce recipes."
Very good recipes that I use just because I am not a fan of traditional tomato sauce dishes.
