Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oil in small skillet over low heat just until warm.
  2. Stir in garlic; cook over low heatfor 8 minutes or until garlis is soft and light golden brown.
  3. Stir in red pepper; saute, stirring, just until oil takes on a yellow color, about 1 minute.
  4. Cook spaghetti in plenty of boiling water until al dente. I boil my water and then turn off burner. Add pasta and stir. Put lid back on and walk away for 6 - 10 minutes and pasta will be done. No peeking.
  5. Ladle out 1/2 cup of pasta cooking liquid; reserve. Drain pasta and toss with garlic oil, pasta cooking liquid and parsley.
  6. Season with pepper/salt and sprinkle on Parmesan cheese.
