Simple but perfect.

Sometimes the most simple things are the best.
Boil the spagetti in salt water.
Drain. Gently fry garlic in a good olive oil. Be generous. Then add the pasta.
Thats it. You can add other things like a few herbs , cheese. Black pepper. But this traditional no fuss peasant cooking. We love, it.

Its funny how something so simple is just lovely. I find I often add too much. I got this from a dear Italian chum.

Yes, better than that white Chinese garlic that supermarkets stock.
