Aglio Olio Peperoncino

Aglio Olio Peperoncino 

The truth about some Italian pasta dishes is that it is so simple that many people cannot but put in some additional ingredients but the other truth is that nothing beats the amazing taste when the pasta is cooked in its original simple format. It takes a total of 8 minutes to prepare and is so comforting that it can easily become a pasta lover's comfort food. The famous Aglio Olio Peperoncino which literally transaltes to garlic oil chili pepper pasta.

I personally love this pasta because of the amazingly short time it takes and the ease with which it can be prepared. It has come to my aid many a times when I have approaching deadlines but quite honestly I love cooking this even when I have ample time on my hands for the amazing flavours and because of the few ingredients you get to enjoy each and every flavour individually .

Serves 1

What you need is :-

100gm spaghetti
1 gigantic clove of garlic
1 ripe red pepper chili
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
Salt as per taste

Cook the pasta as per instructions on the packet. Drain and then Mince the garlic as finely as possible, heat the olive oil and add the garlic but do not brown it , when the aroma spreads throughout your kitchen add the minced red pepper chili and then add salt and add the cooked pasta. Toss well and serve. Its delicious
