"A tasty spaghetti with olive oil instead of the traditional tomato sauce. This is great with bread topped with the olive oil sauce and Provolone cheese that's been toasted in the oven."

The flavor is okay, but would definitely be better with fresh herbs. My problem Is that there was way way too much oil. I wish I had followed what I know instead of the recipe. The noodles were dripping oil. Very unappetizing. The oil can be reduced by 1/2. A Tablespoon or less in the water and 1/4 to 1/3 cup over the noodles would be so much better.
