This is one of the most flavorful and easy pasta recipes you will ever make...that I can promise you. My family has grown up with Aglio e Olio; my Dad would literally "throw it together" on a weeknight before my siblings and I went off to practice or on Sunday for our weekly family suppers. I didn't realize that while most kids were getting served ham and cheese sandwiches on white bread before soccer practice, I was scarfing my face with an essential dish of classic Italian cooking tradition. Showing up to practice with olive oil stains on my shirt, I had no idea how lucky I was.
Like I mentioned, this dish is simple - the ingredients are literally in the name. Aglio, meaning garlic, and Olio, meaning oil, team up as a dynamic duo in this iconic dish. The ease of sautéing fresh garlic in extra virgin olive oil, and throwing in a few chili flakes make this recipe mind-bogglingly effortless while extremely appealing to your taste buds.
