Garlic Spaghetti Aglio Olio – Italian Cook – Food Wishes

Garlic Spaghetti Aglio Olio – Italian Cook –

Spaghetti aglio e olio (“spaghetti with garlic and oil” in Italian) is a traditional Italian pasta dish, coming from Napoli, as it is a variant of the original one: Spaghetti alle vongole.

The dish is made by lightly sauteeing minced or pressed garlic in olive oil, sometimes with the addition of dried red chili flakes, and tossing with spaghetti. Finely chopped parsley can also be added as a garnish, along with grated parmesan or pecorino cheese, although according to some traditional recipes, cheese should not be added.

    Looks yummy. My favorite Italian dish is spinach and potatoes.

  5. Love it especially the one spaghetti olio garlic

  6. When we were growing up, on Friday my mother would make our Spaghetti dinner like this because we are Catholic and did not eat meat on Friday. I wish I had watched more carefully when she was cooking so that I could make some of the dishes she made. R.I.P. Mama – wish you were still here with us.

  7. Grandma would sometimes add a raw egg and mix it on. Pinenuts are good roasted too.

  8. i love this dish. I didn’t watch the video yet, but my Mom made this with anchovies and toasted bread crumbs, yum!

  9. We love this as well topped with feta cheese instead of the Parmesan. Either way, it is a favorite in my house.

  10. my grandmother added an egg to jumbot. Said it pulled the stew together

  11. 1 or 2 small anchovy added after the minced garlic and smashed with a fork will really give it just that right Italian flavor. Great Italian comfort food !!!!!!!

  12. for a better flavor add 1 anchovie, break it apart cook it with the garlic!

  13. Love this dish…

  14. I add fresh tomatoes

  15. I learnt this dish over 20 years ago and have taught it to many friends. It’s a fabulous dish that an ex’s mum taught me who was from Napoli. It was the best thing to come out of that part of my young life lol.. my own mom whos family are from Genoa has taught me dishes hence I’m better cooking Italian than English and my children would agree very much lol
