🍽 Serves ⏲ Total Time
2 0 minutes

🧂 Ingredients

  • 🍝 0.5 lb spaghettoni
  • 🫒 5 Tbsp olive oil
  • 🌿 2 Tbsp parsley
  • 🌶 1 small chili pepper
  • 🧄 2 Tbsp garlic

🍳 Cookware

  • 1 shallow dish
  • 1 saucepan

📝 Instructions

Step 1

In a shallow dish (like a frying pan) add the spaghettoni and barely cover the pasta. You want the pasta water to have as much starch as possible.

Step 2

In a saucepan, heat the olive oil and the parsley stem and add some pasta water. Add the chili pepper, garlic, and maybe a little more pasta water. The perfect formula is about 1 part olive oil for two part pasta water. Cook and mix well to create an emulsion.

Step 3

Add the cooked pasta and mix vigorously to keep that emulsion with the pasta. You can always add a little more olive oil if you wish. Add the chopped parsley at the last minute.

Step 4

Traditionally this dish is NOT served with cheese but as long as you do not have Italian at the dinner table, Bon Appetito 😊!!!
