Spaghetti Aglio e Olio. Spaghetti tossed in sauteed garlic, olive oil, red pepper flakes, and fresh parsley. A quick and easy authentic pasta dish!
Bring 6 quarts of water to a boil over high heat. Add a GENEROUS amount of salt to pot. Stir the spaghetti into the boiling water. Cook the pasta according to package instructions.
*High-quality extra-virgin olive oil makes a big difference in this dish. Make sure it is fresh olive oil as the flavor really comes through.
*Use freshly grated parmesan cheese (not the stuff you find in a green bottle)
