|Serves||Preparation Time||Cooking Time|
|2 People||25 minutes||10 minutes|
- 1 pound dried Colavita Spaghetti
- 1/2 cup Colavita extra-virgin olive oil
- 3 garlic cloves, peeled
- 1 tbsp (tablespoon) red pepper flakes, plus more if desired
- 1/4 cup chopped Italian flat-leaf parsley
- 1 tbsp chopped fresh basil leaves
- 1 tbsp chopped fresh mint leaves
In a large pot, bring to a boil 2 litres of salted water. Add pasta and cook until al dente, about 6 to 8 minutes.
Drain pasta in a colander, just reserve 2 tablespoons of pasta water to create the sauce.
Do not rinse pasta with water so as to retain the pasta’s natural starches so that the sauce will stick.
In a large sauce pan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add the garlic and saute until light brown and fragrant.
Take care to not burn the garlic or else it will become bitter. Separate and discard the browned garlic; if any.
Add red pepper flakes and saute for a minute. Slowly add the reserved pasta water and stir to combine.
Place the spaghetti into the pan and mix well for 1 minute. Remove from heat and top with fresh herbs.
Enjoy your delicious Colavita Spaghetti cuisine with your family or friends.
