Pasta Aglio e Olio

Pasta Aglio e Olio

This is a simple to make satisfying pasta dish from the movie Chef. Man is this a good one I was drooling when I saw it in the movie so i decided with my love for pasta why not bring it home and give it a try. As always enjoy!

  • 1 pound dried spaghetti
  • 1 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 12 large garlic cloves, cut into thin slivers
  • 1 tablespoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • Sea salt
  • Ground black pepper
  • 1 cup fresh parsley, minced
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
  • 2 lemons

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to boil and add the spaghetti, cooking until al dente, 8-10 minutes. Drain.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add garlic and stir frequently until the garlic is golden brown. Add red pepper flakes, salt and pepper.
  3. Add the drained spaghetti directly to the pan. Toss until spaghetti is thoroughly coated with the garlic oil.
  4. Remove pan from heat, add the parsley and Parmesan and toss well. Check for flavor and adjust the salt if necessary. Squeeze lemons on to taste. Garnish with more Parmesan.
  5. Serves 4.
