Spaghetti alla Checca

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Holiday1234

This is a light refreshing -- an almost no cook meal for hot days! The only work involved here is cooking the pasta.

the only thing i would add is make sure you drain the pasta when it is very slightly undercooked as it does continue to 'soften' during the standing time. it was greatly appreciated by all my italian family and i would prepare it again. thank you.
