Spaghetti With Garlic and Oil Sauce √

Serves 4.

From Marcella Hazan’s “Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking.”

• 1 lb. spaghetti or spaghettini

• 1 tbsp. salt

• 1/3 c. extra-virgin olive oil

2 tsp. very finely chopped garlic

Chopped hot red chile pepper, to taste

• 2 tbsp. chopped Italian parsley


Put water and salt in pasta pot; heat to boiling and put in pasta; cook according to package directions. While the pasta is cooking, put the olive oil, garlic and chopped pepper in a small saucepan, and turn the heat to medium-low. Cook and stir the garlic until it becomes pale gold; do not let it turn brown.

Drain the pasta and toss it with the contents of the saucepan, turning the strands over and over in the oil to coat them evenly. Taste and, if necessary, add salt. Add the chopped parsley, toss once again and serve immediately.
