A simple Italian pasta recipe that tastes great and uses basic fresh ingredients. One of my favorites and super fast to make!
TIP #1: I chose to slice the garlic real thin for this recipe. This way I get the flavor and aroma of the garlic but it is not as strong as if I had used minced garlic. In addition, this way allows people to choose whether or not they actually want to eat the garlic.
TIP #2: In the summertime when fresh basil is readily available, toss in a nice big handful of fresh basil about 3 minutes before you add in the pasta. Make sure to put some fresh basil leaves on the side to make a nice presentation.
Tip #3: This goes great with a simple salad. By simple I mean simple. I love fresh greens tossed with good extra virgin olive oil sprinkled with fresh Italian cheese.
TIP #4: Try to avoid thick pasta shapes because the sauce is a delicate one – not heavy.
