Spaghetti with Olive Oil, Garlic and Black Garlic Salt

Quick and easy, yet full of flavour! Good quality Extra Virgin Olive Oil is a must for this recipe! You can also add chilli flakes to add some heat to this dish.

Serves 4.

Ingredients

  • 500g Spaghetti
  • 1/3 cup Rusty Bus Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp Gilmore Valley garlic salt
  • 6 garlic cloves, peeled and sliced thinly
  • Pinch of red chilli flakes (optional)
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 tbs fresh basil, chopped
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese, grated
  • Gilmore Valley Black Garlic salt to serve

Instructions

  1. Bring a large pot of water to the boil. Add garlic salt and pasta. Stir.
  2. While pasta is cooking, combine garlic and olive oil in a frying pan and bring to a gentle simmer. (Keep the heat low, you don't want to burn the garlic!) Cook for about 6 mins until the garlic has softened and slightly brown.
  3. Slowly add approx 1/3 cup of the pasta water to stop garlic from cooking further.
  4. Once Spaghetti is cooked to your liking, drain and add to pan. Add the parsley, basil, chilli flakes (optional) and parmesan and stir well. You can add more pasta water if sauce looks a little dry. 
  5. Serve pasta and sprinkle with Black garlic salt.
