  • Summary

    [Photograph: Vicky Wasik] One of the most basic pasta sauces, aglio e olio uses just garlic and olive oil (and maybe a pinch of red pepper flakes for heat). It sounds too simple to be good, but it's among the best.

    Ingredients

    • Kosher salt
    • 1 pound (450g) dried spaghetti
    • 1/2 cup (120ml) extra-virgin olive oil, divided
    • 4 medium cloves garlic, thinly sliced
    • Red pepper flakes, to taste (optional)
    • Minced flat-leaf parsley, for serving (optional)
