DIRECTIONS

  • Cook the spaghetti in abundant salt water following manufacturer’s instructions, tasting for readiness from time to time.
  • While the pasta is cooking, pour the olive oil in a skillet and add the garlic and red pepper. Turn the heat to medium.
  • Sauté the garlic briefly, but turn heat off before the garlic could begin coloring.
  • When pasta is al dente (firm but not too soft or overcooked), drain and transfer to a bowl.
  • Top with the oil-garlic mixture.
  • Spread the chopped parsley on top (if desired). Toss thoroughly and serve at once.
