True spaghetti aglio e olio is made only from garlic and oil. Adding any other ingredients leads to the preparation of a different dish, according to strict Italians.Most often, the basic recipe is expanded with chili pepper, which is fried together with garlic. I decided to take already ground.And, of course, Parmesan. Sprinkle them on the finished dish is nice, although not necessary.I also took dried tomatoes, but this is absolutely optional. Boil the spaghetti. During this time, we should have time to do everything else.
Heat the oil and fry the garlic in it, cut into slices, until Golden.
Add tomatoes to the garlic (but don't rush them, because they can turn into coals in this deep-fried dish) and chili.When the spaghetti is ready, put aside a glass of water from them, the rest of the water will be salted and put the spaghetti itself in the pan. Mix well. Pepper. And add some of the stored water. Constantly stirring, wait until all the water is absorbed and you can serve.
