I doubled this and used regular ole spaghetti. It was wonderful! I used 2 T minced garlic from a jar, and added 1 t red pepper flakes. So easy to make--So good to eat! Thanks Samuel!

I grew up with a similar recipe...but my mom always added fresh or dried basil to the garlic oil just before tossing with the spaghetti. It's really a winner! We call it garlic spaghetti, a good side to serve with steak.

I adore garlic (can never have too much)!. To simplify (and since I always have it on hand) I used two teaspoons of already miced garlic and a sprinkling of oregano.
