Spaghetti Aglio Olio

This is one of the simplest spaghettis you can make- apparently it is made as a midnight snack by Italians. I found the lack of any meat or seafood a bit unnerving- I would add some grilled shrimp if I can next time round. Also, it called for pepperoncino which I had but I would also add some finely cut red chilli for an added punch.

Ingredients:
6 cloves garlic finely chopped
1 cup parmesan finely grated
1 tsp pepperoncino
parsley (i had to use dried, fresh is better)
pinch of rock salt
5 tbs olive oil
spaghetti (for 2 people)

1. Heat olive oil and fry garlic.
2. Add the boiled spaghetti.
3. Take away from heat and mix in parmesan, spices and parsley.
4. Serve hot.
