Spaghetti with olive oil, chilli and garlic

Spaghetti with olive oil, chilli and garlic

This is one the most basic sauces in the Italian repertoire, but when done properly, it is a little masterpiece. You can replace the parsley with basil, or use some of each.

Serves: 4, Cooking time: 30m

INGREDIENTS:

  • 400g spaghetti
  • 200ml extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 red chilli, finely chopped
  • A large handful of flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
  • Salt

 

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Cook the spaghetti in plenty of boiling salted water until al dente.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a heavy-based frying pan over a low heat, and fry the garlic for 1-2 minutes, stirring with a wooden spoon to spread the flavour through the oil. Add 2 tbsp cooking water to the pan and stir in the chilli and parsley. Season with salt and cook for 3 minutes, mixing occasionally.

  3. When the spaghetti is ready, drain it quickly so it is still rather wet and add it to the sauce. Gently toss to coat, then leave for a minute over a low heat before serving on hot plates.
