I love to cook but some nights I am just not in the mood to be in the kitchen for an extended period of time. This pasta dish is quick, easy, and satisfying. Plus the leftovers are good too!
Spicy, Garlicy Pasta
- 1/2 box of spaghetti
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 tsp of chili pepper flakes
- 1/4 cup of extra-virgin olive oil
- 3/4 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp freshly-ground black pepper
- Parmesan cheese, grated
Cook spaghetti until it is al dente. Drain and set aside. While the noodles are cooking, gently heat the garlic, chili flakes, olive oil, salt and pepper until fragrant. Pour over the noodles and toss to coat everything evenly. Garnish with Parmesan cheese. Serves 2.
