SERVINGS: 2-4 servings

INGREDIENTS

  • ½ pound spaghetti noodles
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup Nuvo Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 8 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 2-3 tablespoons Italian parsley, chopped
  • 1-2 tablespoons vegan parmesan
  • salt, to taste

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. In a large pot, bring 4 cups of water to a boil. Once boiling, add noodles and ¼ teaspoon salt. Boil pasta for 7-9 minutes, until al dente (i.e.cooked in a way so as to be still firm when bitten).
  2. While the noodles are cooking, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add garlic.
  3. Lightly sauté, stirring occasionally, until garlic is fragrant and light brown, about 7 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in red pepper flakes if using.
  4. Drain water from noodles, reserving 2 tablespoons. Do not rinse noodles with water; the starch of the noodles helps bind the sauce to the noodles.
  5. Toss noodles in olive oil/garlic mixture and top with fresh parsley, vegan parmesan, and salt to taste. If noodles seem dry, add reserved water.
  6. Top with fresh parsley, vegan parmesan, salt and Nuvo Olive Oil’s B.S.G (basil/serrano/garlic).
  7. Serve immediately.
