Garlic Chili Aglio Olio Spaghetti


Sometimes the best comfort food is the simplest. Nothing fussy about this dish but just good olive oil, chili and a nice handful of Parmesan cheese! Friday lazy nights to the best! I served this with Crab and Fuji Apple Salad.

I think it was nearly a Nigella moment when my tongue and the garlic/chili flavors met each other.


Garlic Chili Aglio Olio Spaghetti
250 grams Spaghetti
2 chilli chopped (I left the seeds in)
1/4-1/2 cup of good olive oil
1 tablepoon of garlic

Cook Spaghetti as per instructions. Heat oil in pan and fry garlic and chilli. Toss spaghetti with it. Serve with Parmesan cheese.

Another pasta night for friends from Presto Pasta! Hosted by psychgrad from Equal Opportunity and founded by Ruth from Once Upon a Feast.

Drooling! This is one of my fave comfort foods, fast to whip up and yet satisfying! I like to add chilli flakes and chilli padi to make it extra hot :D

Ditto on the previous comment!

There must be some pretty good heat in there -- some good sized chilis throughout.
