This is a delightful dish & the only way you could have an easier pasta dish on your hands is to just open a jar of sauce. Simple, basic ingredients & it comes together in the time it takes to cook the pasta. I will list quantities here as a guide but the amounts of garlic, crushed red pepper & cheese are really up to you. I used way more garlic & crushed red pepper for mine than I will suggest here. I like my shit spicy & I have never tasted something that I would call “too garlicky.”
Easy & Delicious Pasta Aglio e Olio
1/2 lb dry pasta – I used gluten-free brown rice spaghetti
3 garlic cloves (or to taste) – chopped or sliced (I used 6)
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper – or to taste (I used more than 1 TBS)
1/2 cup Grated Parmesan – or to taste (I used less) – OR VEGAN ALTERNATIVE
Cook the pasta according to directions.
Meanwhile, heat 1 TBS or so in a saute pan over medium heat. Add the crushed red pepper. Be careful not to brown the garlic. Lower heat if necessary. When the pasta is done, drain it & add it to the garlic pan. Stir & add the grated cheese. Add some parsley.
Sever that bitch up with more parsley, grated cheese & salt & pepper to taste.
