|Pasta with olive oil and garlic.|
There are so many great looking recipes it was difficult to pick one to try first.
I decided that the simplest things are often the best so I went with the recipe for Spaghetti with Olive Oil.
All I needed was some cooked spaghetti, garlic, olive oil, salt and black pepper.
The dish turned out surprisingly delicious even though I omitted the salt.
The key to this very simple recipe? The garlic is lightly browned.
With every mouthful, you bite into pieces of the browned garlic - which has mellow pungency with none of the bitter taste of raw garlic. Brilliant!
It is definitely not a meal to enjoy right before a hot date or a long business meeting since the garlic is the real star of this dish.
I am looking forward to the next recipe on my list: Fettuccine with Basil-Pea Cream.
Check in tomorrow to see how it turns out:-)
