Servings 4


  • 12 oz Spaghetti Pasta
  • 1 Large Clove Garlic
  • 1 Fresh Chili Pepper
  • Parsley to Taste
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil to Taste
  • Salt and Pepper to Taste


  • Peel and slice the garlic, and slicing the fresh chili pepper into rounds
  • In a frying pan, add the extra virgin olive oil and the freshly chopped garlic and chili
  • Fry everything well, 3-4 minutes should be enough, taking care not to burn them so that the oil is flavored
  • Bring plenty of salted water to a boil and then cook the pasta, keeping it well al dente.
  • Meanwhile, prepare chopped parsley.
  • Drain the pasta (remember to keep aside at least a cup of cooking water) and transfer it to the pan containing the oil, garlic and chili pepper.
  • Stir-fry the pasta: add some cooking water and start to stir-fry. The secret lies in this step; you have to create a creamy sauce that makes the pasta flavorful and well-bonded.
