Aglio E Olio
Recipe: Adapted from the Italian-American Page (Facebook)
Aglio Olio is Italian for "Spaghetti with garlic and oil" and is a very classic dish that originated in Naples, Italy. The recipe below is simple and always tastes terrific!
1 pound dried pasta (spaghetti, linguine, or your favorite pasta)
2 cups extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons minced garlic
1 tablespoon crushed red pepper flakes
Cook pasta in boiling, salted water until al dente. Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a saucepan over medium heat.
Add garlic and red pepper flakes and cook until garlic is lightly browned.
Remove from heat. Drain pasta, reserving 1/4 cup of the cooking liquid, and place in a bowl for tossing and serving.
Add olive oil mixture and toss. Add the reserved cooking liquid if mixture seems dry. Serve immediately.
