  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Pasta

 Ingredients List

  • 1/2 c Extra-virgin olive oil
  • 12 Garlic cloves; thinly sliced
  • 1/2 ts Red chile flakes
  • 1/2 ts Salt
  • 1/2 Lemon
  • 1 bn Italian parsley; chopped
  • 1 lb Spaghetti
  • Garlicky breadcrumbs


Recipe by: Evan Kleiman and Viana La Place, Cucina Rustica Heat the olive
oil gently with the garlic in a small skillet. When the garlic turns
opaque, add the red chile pepper flakes, and the salt. Squeeze the lemon
into the hot oil. Turn off the heat and let the garlic turn light golden at
the edges. The garlic will continue to cook in the hot oil. When the oil
has cooled somewhat, add the parsley.

Meanwhile, cook the spaghetti in abundant boiling salted water until al
dente. Drain the pasta well in a colander and place in a shallow serving
dish. Pour the warm olive oil with the garlic, chile and parsley over the
pasta. If desired, drizzle more extra-virgin olive oil on top. Top with a
handful of Garlicky Breadcrumbs.

Drizzle a little olive oil in a pan along with minced garlic. Toss to coat
while adding bread crumbs, salt and pepper.
