Aglio E Olio

This traditional spaghetti with garlic and olive oil recipe cooks quickly and is simply delicious.


  • 200gr spaghetti
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 2 small fresh chili
  • Few leaves of parsley
  • Olive oil
  • Salt


Boil water in a large pot with salt. Cook the pasta in the boiling water. Cooking time always be 2 minutes less than the pasta package’s instruction.

While the pasta is cooking, put thinly sliced garlic, chilli and olive oil into a pan over a medium heat. Cook until the garlic slices are golden, very carefully to pour a spoon of pasta water into the pan.

Season the sauce with salt. Drain the pasta when time is up, save a cup of pasta water.

Drop the pasta into the pan. Add any pasta water if necessary.

Keep tossing or mixing the pasta to release starch, let the water evaporate and it will become a creamy sauce.

Serve with chopped parsley on top.
