    Ahhh Deanna adore that you have gone for pasta. Divine garlicky pasta, indeed, but so good to show that carbs are not the enemy. Love your Nonnos phrase – I say to heck with being afraid of any single food.

      Yes, bring on the carbs! Loved your bread post – I’m inspired to make my own starter.

      Dea – I’ve been building up my “heat” tolerance – sprinkling more in each time I make it :)

    Yum! This is one of my favorite dishes from when I lived in Italy. My local pizzeria called it “Spaghetti Aglio Olio e Peperoncino.” Ahhh … I miss those days. But at least I can make it at home! Thanks for the recipe. This dish is so delicious and yet so simple to prepare.

      Technically, I should have called this “aglio olio e peperoncino” because indeed it does have red pepper in it! Ah, you lived in Italy – swoon. My sister did as well for 3 years and I tried to get over there as much as I could back then :)

    Such a fun ReDux theme- sorry I missed it! You have prepared one of my all time favorite “comfort food” dishes :-) I have only seen Lincoln this year, so rooting for that!

      Lincoln is at the top of my Netflix when it comes out on DVD. I hope everyone in your house is on the mend!

    I might start using your Grandpop’s saying on my own family 😉 Great story behind this recipe

      Kat – my Pop Pop has been gone 10 years now and I had forgotten he use to say that all the time teasingly. I totally am reviving the saying with my husband and 5 yr old now :)

    Love the simplicity of your recipe. Who doesn’t love the Godfather series. It’s one of my all-time favorites. Your recipe would be perfect for one’s own version of “dinner and a movie,” to watch the Godfather series again with friends and family.

      OK, LOVE your idea of a personal “dinner and a movie.” I consider it sacrilegious that my sister has never even seen any of the Godfather movies (I’m fine with skipping the 3rd one though :)

    Great pictures. It looks very tasty. :) My family loves pasta. We will have to give this a try.

    Wow, that sounds SO good, I LOVE red pepper flakes on almost anything! Your pics are beautiful as always.

    Deanna, simply bellissimo! I am not Italian but embrace the Italian culture and cuisine like I am (is this illegal? Haha). I cook pasta for dinner 4/7 nights (our main meal being lunch) and I forget the simple pleasures of just spaghetti with garlic and olive oil. Going to make this next week! Buon Appetito.

      An Italian lover living in France – sounds like food nirvana to me! (And of course we welcome all to the “eet-tal-len” club :)

    LOVE the pasta! Looks so good! But never saw the Godfather movies, sounds like I am missing out!

    Yum! I love Spaghetti Aglio e Olio! Reminds me of my childhood. We ate dishes like this all time time in my big family, it was cheap and filling!

    Love the simplicity. I have become friends with an Italian and LOVE cooking with her. Delicious, simple, uncomplicated.

    hello, i was wondering what other spice can i used to replace the red pepper flakes since i’m unable to find it… would the japanese chili pepper or the mexican chili peper be a good option? would it change the flavor of the dish? what is the flavor of the spaghetti like ? should it be spicy? sorry so many questions but i’ve never tried this type of pasta, but would love to do so now… thanks!

      You could use cayenne pepper or another chili pepper for the same taste or you could leave it out all together for a milder tasting pasta – it doesn’t have to be spicy.
