To be frank, I can't pronounce the name of this pasta to save my life.
But what I can say is that it was very good and very easy to make!
Never eat spaghetti without the twirl of a fork.I searched online for recipes to use up the last of my whole wheat spaghetti and I found this one on FitSugar.com. What I really liked about the dish was that there was nothing too fancy on the ingredient list; no fake ground beef, no sauce (even though I added my own on the side), and even no vegetables. If that sounds plain or boring to you, then you must try this dish to change your mind! The only ingredients that made this spaghetti delicious were olive oil, salt, pepper, minced garlic, and chili pepper flakes.
How easy is that? =)In fact, for all you non-Italian speaking viewers, the name of this recipe translates into "spaghetti with garlic, olive oil, and chili flakes." Pretty self-explanatory (but I still can't pronounce it).
Here are the nutrition facts when the recipe is made with whole wheat pasta and 1/4 cup of olive oil. The info is also divided for four people:
Nutrition Facts per Serving
You can always add only as much olive oil as you like. The oil is a high fat/high calorie source so go easy with it if you're watching your weight. You can also make this recipe gluten-free by using gluten-free pasta. Another plus for this meal is that you're not cooking the garlic, which makes room for more of its healing properties.
Cheers for feeling like Garfield while eating spaghetti. ;)
