Pasta Aglio e Olio⁣

This delicious warm bowl of goodness will fill your home with the smell of garlic and olive oil. This is one of my favorite go to meals when I don’t feel like cooking. It’s made with a few ingredients that you likely have, and you can feed a whole family in a matter of 15 minutes.

Serves: 6 ⁣
Time: 15 min ⁣

1 pound of spaghetti ⁣
8 cloves garlic sliced thinly⁣
1/2 cup olive oil⁣
1 Tbs red pepper flakes ⁣
1 cup chopped flat leaf parsley ⁣
Salt and pepper to taste ⁣
Parmigiano reggiano for dusting (not essential) ⁣

Directions: ⁣
1. Cook pasta per description on packaging to al dente ⁣
2. While pasta is cooking add garlic to oil in a fry pan and heat together over medium heat. Once the edges of the garlic begin browning turn off heat and add red pepper flakes (garlic will continue to brown) ⁣
3. Drain pasta reserving about 3/4 cup of pasta water, return pasta to pot, add oil/garlic mixture, pasta water, and toss then add chopped parsley, salt and pepper ⁣

Serve and top with some cheese. Sooo good. ⁣
