Spaghetti with Chili and Garlic Recipe:
1 tablespoon chopped fresh garlic (or a little more, if you dare)
2 teaspoons chili flakes
1/4 cup good olive oil
Cook one pound of spaghetti in lots of boiling, well-salted water. In a tablespoon of heated olive oil, fry the garlic and chili until fragrant, but do not allow the garlic to brown. When you have drained the al dente pasta, toss with the chili and garlic mixture in a serving bowl, and pour in the rest of the olive oil. Toss well, and serve warm. Serve with some good Parmesan and hunks of fresh bread on the side.
- Serves four
