This has always been one of my fave pasta dishes. I prefer to cook whole flattened garlic cloves and remove them when golden. I also add a splash of white wine instead of the pasta liquid and then finish with the best oil you can afford before serving, Delizioso! 200g spaghetti is a bit stingy for 2 people I find, I use about 150g per person.

Love love love this recipe. Made it loads of times since I found it on here having eaten it in Italy. The addition of the pasta water to the oil based sauce is important to the consistency. I add loads of black pepper and use dried chilli flakes and fine herbs usually and I sprinkle it with parmesan. Lovely and very easy!

i tried this thinking i had all the ingredients needed- i didnt, i used penne pasta (tri coloured) and i also never had fresh chilli or parsley so i fried dried chilli seeds, garlic and some dried thyme and basil and tossed the pasta into the pan, it turned out lovely and id certainly make again

This is a really nice quick and simple dish to make. I added some mushrooms and olives to mine. I also used corriander as I didn't have any parsley but I think basil would work great with this too. It's a dish that you can play about with and try adding is different things to suit your taste. Didn't give it 5 stars as it isn't going to blow your mind, but for quick and easy meal that is also cheap it is a definite winner.

certainly quick and easy and the chili added a subtle kick. i threw in some chopped sun dried tomatoes at the end to give it a bit more flavour and passed on the salt

Instead of garlic, you can use onions and chives. I make this most of the time when there's nothing in the fridge and we need a quick fix. Fry some onions with chives (dried from supermarkets, about two teaspoons) and chillis, then add boiled spaghetti.

I first had this dish in Sicily with my ex wife who is Sicilian. Anyway, I tweaked it by adding fresh thinly sliced mushrooms and chopped turkey slices to the frying oil. It was lovely. I would strongly advise the following: do not use dried substitutes for the main ingredients e.g. dried garlic powder, dried parsley,etc. It will taste awful. Anyway, enjoy this classic italian or tweak it your own way. Try frying some thinly sliced beef or chicken with mushrooms, courgettes, aubergines, whatever you like. It's a very forgiving base.
