directions

  • Bring 4 quarts of water to a boil in a big pot.
  • Process the garlic through a garlic press into a small bowl; stir in 1 teaspoon water.
  • Heat the oil, diluted garlic, and 1 teaspoon salt in a small skillet on low heat.
  • Cook very slowly until the garlic turns golden, about 3 minutes.
  • Be careful not to brown the garlic or your sauce will be bitter; remove pan from heat.
  • When the water boils, add 1 tablespoon salt and the pasta.
  • Cook until al dente; drain, letting some of the cooking water cling to the noodles.
  • Return the dripping noodles to the pot and toss with the oil mixture, cheese, and vinegar.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste; divide among 4 warmed pasta bowls; serve immediately.
