  1. Heat olive oil in small skillet over medium-low heat; cook and stir the garlic until fragrant, about 3 minutes.
  2. Toss hot cooked pasta (see Cook's Note) with olive oil and garlic mixture. Add the parsley, salt, and ground black pepper to taste. Serve with fresh-grated Parmesan cheese.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • I cook 8 ounces of spaghetti until al dente and toss with this sauce. You may use 1 teaspoon dried parsley if you don't have fresh.
