Pasta Aglio el Olio (Spaghetti with Garlic & Oil)


• 1/2 lb of linguini pasta (8oz)

• 1 clove of garlic (sliced finely)

• 1 lemon (sliced in half)

• 1 bunch of fresh parsley (lightly shredded)

• 1 gallon of water (for cooking pasta)

• 5 oz olive oil

• 1 tbsp chili flakes

• 2 tbsp salt

Optional: Parmesan Cheese (grated)



(1) Chop ingredients to instructed (or desired) sizes; Add water and salt to stockpot, cover with lid, and bring to a boil. 

(2) Add the pasta to boiling water and stir a few times. Cook 6 minutes. 

(3) Check the noodles are fully cooked: Cut a piece of noodle to see if the center is still white, or nearly translucent. If it is nearly translucent, you are ready to move on to Step 4.

(4) Save ¼ cup of pasta water in a mini bowl or ramekin. Then drain the pasta fully.

Note: For an al dente texture, rinse the pasta under cool water for a second before placing in a bowl (this will stop the cooking process, and allow the pasta to retain an al dente, or a little chewy, texture.)

(5) Heat the olive oil in a frypan on medium-low heat. When the oil is hot, add the garlic slices and chili flakes (let cook 2-4 minutes, or until the garlic is lightly browned).

(6) Add the ¼ cup of pasta water, followed by the pasta and the parsley. Mix evenly, then serve!
