About this recipe: Just what it says on the box: spaghetti tossed with garlic and olive oil. I like to give this simple dish a kick by adding dried chillies. Serve with grated Parmesan.

It was ok, but could do with more flavour. - 10 Jul 2009
I grew up with this stuff - it's a dish that's like second nature to most Italians. It's not really all that hot and it really shouldn't be - that's not supposed to be the point. This recipe is wonderful and right on as is, however, mixing in some fresh chopped parsley at the last adds freshness and color. But certainly add the garlic, oil and crushed red pepper to suit your own tastebuds, as Im sure the submitter would agree. Tonight, just for something a little different, I made this in the style of Cacio e Pepe - add some of the reserved pasta cooking water to the cooked spaghetti, then mix in some grated Parmesan or Romano cheese - what you want to achieve is a creamy sauce. If it is too watery, add more cheese - if too dry, add more of that beautiful, starchy pasta cooking water. Just another delicious way to eat basic pasta... - 26 Feb 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
