Spaghetti with garlic and red chili pepper.
Probably Italy's easiest and most popular pasta dish, «spaghetti aglio, olio e peperoncino» is often made late in the evening and enjoyed among friends after an evening out at the movies, a play, etc.
|1 clove||garlic, crushed|
|1/2||dried chili peppers, minced||0.4 g|
|2 tbsp||olive oil||30 mL|
|2 tbsp||Parmesan cheese, grated [optional]||6 g|
Before you start
Keep the serving dishes in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve. Put a colander in the sink to drain the cooked pasta so that it will be ready when needed.
- To save time, the sauce preparation and the pasta cooking can be done at the same time. Start cooking the pasta.
- Meanwhile, heat the oil in a frying pan over medium-low heat. Sauté the garlic 2-3 min. Pay attention not to let it burn. Add the chili pepper. Add more for extra spiciness.
- Pour the drained spaghetti into the pan and add salt to taste. Sprinkle with grated Parmesan (optional), then serve in the warmed dishes.

I added chili pieces to the sauce mix instead of a part of a chili. Careful with the spice when you're first making it! :)
