    Daydream's Note:

    This dish, for lovers of pasta, garlic and chilies, could hardy be simpler or more delicious. The flavor is enhanced by the quality of the olive oil and the fire of the chilies. Be heedful that this is not a sauce, as such - rather, each strand of spaghetti is coated with luscious, garlicky oil, and little red and green flecks of chili and parsley. If you prefer a milder, less fiery, dish, use two or less chilies, and remove the seeds. Adapted from Beverley Sutherland Smith's, 'A Taste in Time'. For a variation, I sometimes saute about 8 ounces sliced portobello mushrooms in butter, and top each serving with a spoonful or two. Yum.
