      I make this often. I never add the chilies, my husband wouldn't like it that way. In the summer, when we have fresh tomatoes I'll slice up some and toss them in with the garlic and oil. This is also good with some fresh arugula or spinach tossed in at the last moment.

      I grew up in an Italian household and we called this Greasy Spaghetti growing up. I haven't had it since my Nana died, thanks for reminding me of this. Added a 1/4 cup Parm at step 10. Was wonderful. Thanks again.
