Aglio Et Olio – Pasta with Olive Oil and Garlic

IMG_2178This is a simple and pretty traditional Italian dish.  It takes only a few minutes and has a great pop of garlic.  If you aren’t big on having garlic seeping out of your pores like I am just cut back on the garlic!


pasta – make sure you get gluten-free as it suits your needs – I go for the quinoa spaghetti or linguine style.  I also cook light so half a box makes a meal for two in my house.

3 or 4 cloves garlic – chopped

1/2 cup olive oil


Cook your pasta as per the instructions on the package.

In a small skillet, heat the 1/2 cup of olive oil.  Once hot, after about 2 minutes, toss in your garlic.  Let cook on medium to low for about 8 minutes or until the garlic is brown and crunchy.

Server the olive oil over your pasta and done!  So easy and so delicious, try this with a good bottle of Sangiovese!
