Spaghetti with Garlic, oil and Chilli


Massimo says:

This is definitely the easiest recipe of Italian cuisine but at the same time, in order to be really good to be prepared for good. Without a doubt the predominant flavour is that of chilli that fits perfectly with the garlic and olive oil. The origins of this dish are very ancient, and even today we cannot establish the paternity of this recipe although many regions try to claim it. So I have decided to claim it and it belongs now to the Neapolitans. A twist on this recipe as we all love a twist is add some chopped walnuts when cooking garlic you will love it. A sprinkle of parmesan is also nice although not traditional
