Oh, it feels good to finally have drawn a recipe that has been a staple in our family for years and years. This is a simple recipe with tons of flavor. Just garlic and red pepper sautéed in a good extra virgin olive oil and then mixed with some spaghetti and fresh parsley. Nothing fancy, but nothing better. I do usually add some anchovy, but it is not necessary.
When I first tried this recipe, Michael’s cousin made it for me. I was helping her in the kitchen that day and I kept questioning her about what other ingredients that we needed for the dish. I couldn’t believe that this could work. Well, it blew me away then and still does today. Comfort food at its finest!
