Olive Oil, Garlic, and Crushed Red Pepper Pasta Sauce

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by JackieOhNo

A staple in an Italian household, this is thrown together easily from ingredients always on hand. Makes a simple pasta dinner along with a salad or a nice side dish. Just toss with one pound of cooked pasta (I like it with spaghetti).

Great dish! I loved the garlic and red pepper combo, that it was so fast and easy to put together and with ingredients always on hand. Had it with marinated mushrooms and garlic bread, so it was garlic all the way. It's a keeper for me.
