Pasta Aglio Olio

Serves 4
Time 20 minutes


500g spaghetti
200ml extra virgin olive oil
6 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 tsp dried chilli flakes, or to taste
1 bunch flat leaf parsley, finely chopped 

To serve
1 lemon, zest
Parmesan cheese


Cook pasta to packet instructions in boiling salted water. 

Heat garlic and onion in extra virgin oil gently over a medium high heat, until they become soft. Once the garlic begins to colour add a few ladles of the pasta water to the pan to stop it from cooking. 

Add pasta and parsley to the pan and stir through the sauce, season well with salt and pepper. 

Serve the pasta with parmesan and lemon zest.
