1 pound (450g) of good quality dried spaghetti (or any pasta of your choice)

1 cup (120ml) extra virgin olive oil

8-10 cloves of garlic, thinly sliced and preferably shaved on a mandolin for uniform size

1/2 pound or 2 cups of diced tomato

1 teaspoon red pepper flakes (adjust to taste)

Salt, to taste

Black pepper, to taste

Fresh basil, chopped, for garnish

Grated Parmesan cheese, for serving (optional)



For the Pasta

Step 1

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.

Cook the pasta according to the package instructions until al dente.

Step 3
Reserve about 1 cup of pasta cooking water before draining.

For the Aglio e Olio Sauce

Step 1

While the pasta is cooking, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.

Step 2
Add the sliced garlic. Let it toast in the oil evenly until golden, careful not to over cook or over stir the garlic.  This should take about 2-3 minutes.

Step 3
Add chili flakes, diced tomatoes, and pasta water.  The pasta water will stop the garlic from cooking which is important.  Lower the heat to simmer.

Step 4
Once the pasta is cooked, drain, and toss the pasta in the garlic-infused oil.  Stir  until well coated and the liquid is reduced.  If the pasta seems dry, add the reserved pasta cooking water a little at a time until you reach the desired consistency.

Step 5
Season the pasta with salt and black pepper to taste. (Pro tip: Taste dish first before seasoning with additional salt because the salt from the pasta water can often be enough.). Garnish with torn fresh basil for a burst of freshness.  Serve immediately.
