Spaghetti with Garlic and Oil


When you're looking through your pantry and trying to decide what to make for dinner, it's hard to beat Spaghetti with Garlic and Oil. This dish has so few ingredients and relies on good pasta, excellent olive oil, lots of garlic, crushed red pepper, and I like to add anchovies as well. The anchovies all but disappear when cook but give this dish a little something extra. Then sprinkle with some cheese, and it's delicious. This dish is simplicity at its best.

1/2 cup of olive oil

8 cloves garlic, chopped

3/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper

The sauce is ready, just toss it with the pasta and then add the parsley;season with salt and pepper.


It's ready! Spaghetti with Garlic and Oil is one of my favorites. I love how so few ingredients can create such a delicious and satisfying dish. I think it's perfect for any night of the week, and leftovers are great when mixed in a frittata.
