This month for the Secret Recipe Club i was assigned Wendy's blog. A Day in the life of a farm. I must admit as I browsed through Wendy's blog I couldn't help envying her. Wendy seems to have a farm life that I have always dreamed . Growing her own food, having chickens around, fresh eggs to enjoy. Wow!
I picked the recipe Spaghetti Aglio e Olio. It is simply so easy to whip up though it has this exotic tongue twisting name . As for the taste... My little boy polished it all. I did manage to get a wee bit in my mouth before he attacked it. Very simple combination of flavours, the garlic, olive oil and parsley blend perfectly. A must try pasta.
Spaghetti Aglio e Olio
1 lb dried spaghetti noodles
1/3 cup olive oil
6 tsp minced garlic
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
1 Tsp salt
1/2 cup fresh parsley, finely chopped
1 cup shredded Parmesan
- Bring a large pot of well salted water to a boil and cook the pasta.
- While the pasta is cooking, place a large skillet over low heat. Add the olive oil, garlic and crushed pepper and cook slowly for a few minutes. Add the cooking water and a tsp of salt simmer until reduced by half.
- Add the cooked pasta to the skillet along with the parsley and cheese. Toss to coat and serve with additional cheese for sprinkling.
