- 250 g Spaghetti (Boiled in Salt Water till Al Dente)
Boil spaghetti in salted water as per package instructions until al dente.
While the spaghetti is boiling, heat a tablespoon of olive oil in a pan and add mushrooms. Saute on medium high heat for a few minutes till golden brown on all sides.
Push the mushrooms to one side of the pan and add the remaining olive oil, garlic and chilli flakes. Saute for about a minute, making sure not to burn the garlic and add spaghetti, butter, parsley and salt. Toss well till the herbs coat the spaghetti and the butter has melted. Serve hot with some crusty bread and a salad.
Feel free to swap the mushrooms for something else like bacon (see bacon aglio olio) or shrimp (see shrimp aglio olio)
