Aglio E Olio – Italian Pasta Aglio E Olio

August 16, 2018 Pasta / Pizza Recipes  No comments

Aglio E Olio is a traditional Italian recipe made with either spaghetti or pasta. I recently tasted this in a Italian restaurant. It was an open kitchen kind of restaurant and the chef made the food right in front of us. So I was curious to know the recipe when we ordered this. Trust me this is such a simple recipe with full of flavours from garlic and olive oil. We just loved it for its flavours. Compared to my Cheesy Pasta recipe, this is a guilt-free recipe as not much cheese is added here. The chef just drizzled some parmesan cheese on top, but I have skipped that as well.

Now to the recipe..
