It’s no secret that I love garlic. It is one of my favorite ingredients, and in my opinion, there are very few dishes that are not enhanced by the addition of some freshly minced garlic. With this dish, I really wanted the flavor of garlic to come through, so I kept the recipe quite simple. I focused on infusing the aroma and flavor of fresh garlic into olive oil, and then tossing it with red crushed peppers, herbs, and pasta, creating a delicious flavor-filled, light Italian dish!
If you recall, a few months ago, I couldn’t get enough of one of my favorite Italian plates made with olive oil, black pepper, and Parmesan cheese, over some spaghetti or spaghetti squash, otherwise known as Cacio e Pepe. This recipe is yet another simple Italian pasta dish that has quickly become one of our favorites, especially on hot days when you’re looking for a lighter meal.
