       Aglio Olio, is a simple pasta recipe which is nothing but Angel hair pasta cooked in olive oil flavoured with garlic and spiced with the red chillies. Once when I ordered this from ‘Pasta Mania’, I loved the simplicity of the ingredients and loved the taste the best of all pasta dishes. It is a treat for those who doesn’t like the usual pasta tomato sauce.
Aglio olio Recipe
   Try this easy and simplest pasta recipe and you will be amazed by its taste. The fragrant from garlic along with red chilli,infused in olive oil is quite good in this..

Notes
  • Using olive oil is best for this recipe.
  • Try topping with parmesan hard grating for a cheesy twist.
  • I used extra light tasting olive oil.
Transfer to the serving plate and enjoy hot,if you want you can even top with parmesan cheese. But its quite great as such!!

  60. can we use spaghetti instead of angel hair? would it still be good?

    ReplyDelete
  61. I had used Spaghetti to make this a long time ago. I had followed the recipe written from some Italian cookbook. It said that adding a few drops of oil while boiling the pasta will prevent it from sticking to each other and we shouldn't rinse/wash the spaghetti as it will wash away the starch, making sauces harder to stick to it. I added some mint too and lots of garlic! It was awesome though! :D

    ReplyDelete
  62. Nice presentation. I love this one from pastamania. When I make it, I always add Italian herbs at the end to the pasta and toss it. The garlic, olive oil and herbs make a deadly combo!

    ReplyDelete
  63. very simple n tasty!! will try it soon........!
