A favorite dish at Da Silvano's in NYC. Found the quick and simple recipe in a magazine and had to share ... Mangia!

- sea salt (to taste)
- ground black pepper (to taste)
- 1 lb tagliatelle pasta noodles or 1 lb spaghetti, cooked according to directions
- Warm the Olive Oil in a pot and add 2 cloves of Garlic. Once Garlic browns, remove it.
