This is a quick easy dish made with ingredients easily found around your home. I liked it though I think it would taste better with home grown parsley as opposed to store bought since the scent was not there. Would make it again, probably with more parsley.
- 1 pound spaghetti (substituted penne)
- 1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil (reduced to 1/4 cup)
- 4 garlic cloves, chopped
- 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
- 1/2 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley
- 1/2 cup mixed freshly grated Parmesan and pecorino Romano (I only used Parmesan)
- 1/2 cup fresh bread crumbs crisped in 1 T olive oil
Cook the spaghetti in plenty of salted boiling water. Meanwhile, warm the oil with the garlic and pepper flakes in a wide skillet over medium heat. As soon as the garlic starts to color, remove from the heat.
Drain the spaghetti, shaking off excess water, and put it in a warmed pasta bowl. Pour the mixture over the top and toss with parsley and cheese. Taste fro salt, season with pepper, and serve with bread crumbs scattered on top.
