Category: Main Dish

Description: Pasta Aglio e Olio is a timeless Italian delicacy celebrated for its simplicity and delightful flavors. The harmonious blend of garlic, olive oil, and red pepper flakes produces a delectable sauce that gracefully envelops the pasta. This dish is not only easy to whip up but also captures the true essence of Italy with its minimal yet authentic ingredients.


Preparation Mode:

Cook the spaghetti until it is firm to the bite, following the instructions on the package. Before draining, make sure to save a cup of the pasta water. While the pasta is cooking, heat some olive oil in a large pan over medium heat.

Add sliced garlic and red pepper flakes, and sauté them until the garlic turns golden, but not browned. Once the pasta is cooked, transfer it directly to the pan with the garlic and oil. Mix it well to ensure that the pasta is evenly coated.

If the pasta appears dry, gradually add the reserved pasta water until you reach the desired consistency. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper, and sprinkle some chopped fresh parsley on top. Serve immediately, and if you like, you can add grated Parmesan cheese as a topping.

Enjoy the wonderful simplicity of Pasta Aglio e Olio.
