This is literally the most simple spaghetti recipe I have ever made. It only has four basic ingredients and is absolutely delicious. If you want to up the nutritional value of this dish, just add some grilled mushrooms on the side (YUM). Recipe at the bottom of this post!
Back when I lived in Italy I ate this spaghetti dish quite often, especially for lunch. Since it includes chili pepper, it’s actually called ‘spaghetti aglio, olio e peperoncino’ after its three main ingredients. Make sure you use a good, extra virgin olive oil, as the oil is also one of the main ingredients of this recipe. You can’t really get away with using a cheap oil, because it just won’t taste as good. Make sure the oil has a dark colour and smells nice and olivy. You can use dried or fresh parlsey, but my preference is definitely fresh. It tastes much better. Since this spaghetti only has a few ingredients, it’s important to get the right ones!
