  • 8 Ounces Angel Hair Pasta
  • 4 Tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 6 Medium Garlic Cloves (minced, or six ((6)) teaspoons of minced)
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes (or to taste)
  • 1/8 Cup Italian Parsley (fresh, finely chopped)
  • 1/4 Cup Pasta Water (reserved)
  • Salt and Pepper to Taste


  • Cook the angel hair in salted water according to the package directions. Reserve ¼ cup of the pasta water, and set aside the drained pasta.
  • In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over low-medium heat. Add the garlic, and cook for 2-3 minutes. Take care not to let the garlic turn brown. Add the red pepper and parsley, then remove from heat.
  • Add the drained pasta to the garlic and olive oil mixture, then return to low-medium heat. Toss the noodles with the oil to coat. Pour in splashes of pasta water as needed to loosen the sauce.
  • Serve immediately with freshly grated Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper to taste.
