Nif's Garlic and Bread Crumb Spaghetti

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Nif_H

This is a surprisingly good combination of pasta and bread crumbs. I had never heard of that until I tried Noo's Spaghetti Alla Carrettiera (Thin Spaghetti With Breadcrumbs). I came up with a version of my own that I think is quite tasty too! :) This is quick and easy as well, so it's a great last minute meal. Enjoy!

I made my own breadcrumbs and the secret of this recipe is the EVOO. I might have added more garlic.This is so fast and easy to put together. And delicious as well. Thanks for sharing.
