    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    Easy and so good, if you love garlic then you love this pasta dish! adjust the garlic to taste, I use 4 tablespoons for this recipe, you might want to reduce that a bit. Increase the dried red pepper flakes for more heat!

      This is one of my favorite recipes. To add a little more flavor, dissolve a can of anchovies in the oil while browning the garlic.

      One of the best Aglio Olio recipe I ever tried. Made no changes as it's perfect just the way it is.

      3.5 stars. It's a good recipe considering it is "pasta from nothing." Basically, you can make it from thin air and I really wasn't expecting this to be anything special. I added some dried crushed basil and more lemon juice. I was thinking this would be a watery mess, but it all incorporated quite nicely. I only cooked my garlic for about 3 mins. I think if I cooked it for the full 6 mins, I would have had burned garlic. I'd serve this as a side dish as it doesn't really have anything nutritious in it. It has a similar mouth feel of a cream sauce. It's good for what it is.
