Spaghetti Aglio Olio

Cant believe today am entering to the last and final week of this month's long marathon, happy that i could make this incredible blogging marathon with many beautiful dishes under different themes and am loving it. Do you want to know about this week's theme of mine?. Its again an another interesting theme with two choices, yes this week's theme is going to be International dishes or fusion dishes. Do i need to tell wat i chosed, obviously am going to run this week with International dishes. Eventhough i have a bunch of fusion foods that goes very well with this week's theme, i picked International cuisines. Since i love to cook from various cuisine, this week is going to be very much interesting when compared to the previous weeks.

For the first day of this week, we are travelling towards Italy. This country is very close to my heart coz Italy was the first country i visited after my marriage. I had a chance to visit the floating city Venise few years back with my better half, we had a fabulous time there and obviously i came back home with many more precious moments to cherish. The first dish i tasted there is spaghetti alla carbonara which was just out of the world.Spaghetti alla carbonara is a super rich creamy dish with loads of cream and cheese, i still remember the taste of this spaghetti dish. Actually when i planned International cuisines for this week, i decided to make spaghetti alla carbonara but finally i went for a super simple spaghetti aglio olio, one of the famous dish in Italy which is also a traditional dish there.This flavourful and quick spaghetti dish takes hardly less than 20minutes to get ready. Just cook your spaghetti and saute them with garlic, red chilly flakes with salt and dry herbs, thats it. Your spaghetti aglio olio is ready to enjoy, serve this mildy spiced spaghetti with some grilled meats or oven roasted potatoes for your lunch or dinner, am sure you will enjoy thoroughly your food. This dish goes under our family favourite foods list,even my daughter makes this dish. Yes this dish is very simple to dish out with less efforts.


1/2kg Spaghetti (cooked as per instruction)
8nos Garlic cloves (thinly chopped)
1tsp Red chilly flakes
1tbsp Dry parsley leaves
Olive oil
Salt
1cup Cooked pasta water

For pasta water: Once your spaghetti gets cooked remove a cup of water and drain the cooked spaghetti,take care the water will be very hot.

Heat the olive oil in a large pan, add immediately the thinly sliced garlic cloves and cook for few minutes until they turns golden brown.

Add the red chilly flakes ,give a stir.

Add immediately the cooked pasta waterand bring it to boil.

Put the flame in simmer, add the salt and cook for few more minutes.

Once the water gets reduced, add immediately the cooked pasta and dry parsley leaves and toss everything well.

Cook the pasta for few minutes and put off the stove.

Serve warm.
