I was quite surprised when i came across this recipe, because i always thought that pasta taste good when it is had with some strong sauces like tomato sauce or cheese sauce. But this recipe calls for only garlic, chilli and olive oil. So i decided to give it a try. Yesterday i was starving in hunger, so decided to try this because it takes only minutes to make. Frankly speaking the minute when the pasta is done the flavourful oil is done. Then you have to just toss the pasta in this and dig in straight away.

I used Del Monte Spaghetti and Del Monte Olive oil..The reason behind this is, since this recipe calls for only minimal ingredients, you should use the best of that. So i used those good stuffs..In this recipe you can taste the real meatiness of the spaghetti without overwhelming the taste with those spicy sauces..
Del Monte Spaghetti – 250 gms
Del Monte Olive Oil – 6 tblspn
Garlic – 6 fat cloves chopped finely
Red Chilli Flakes – 1 tsp
Coriander leaves/ Cilantro – 3 tblspn finely chopped
Salt to taste
Water – to cook pasta
Bring water to a boil and add salt to it.
Now add in the pasta and cook till al dente or as per package instructions.
Drain it and wash with with plenty of cold water till all the starch goes away.
Now heat olive oil in a pan and add garlic immediately, so that garlic flavours the oil.
When garlic turn light golden. Add chilli flakes and mix well.
Now add in coriander leaves and switch off the flame.
