If you want or need one of the simplist pasta recipes ever then this is the one for you. It is simply pasta tossed with parsley, pepper flakes, garlic, and EVOO. Yes, it IS that simple.

    Spaghettini with Olive Oil and Garlic

It is the perfect side dish for just about anything. The flavors are mild so it won’t overpower whatever you serve it with. We had it with baked chicken rolled in Italian seasoning and panko bread crumbs. Just 1/4 of the entire recipe was more than enough for the side and a little extra.

The only change I would make – add just a tad more garlic. The two medium cloves (1/2 clove for 1/4 recipe) simply was not enough. Everything else was just fine.
