  • Boil spaghetti in sufficiently salted water until al dente.
  • Peel cloves of garlic and squeeze them softly with the heel of hand.
  • Chop parsley.
  • Heat olive oil (2-3 mm high) in a pan. Add garlic, and cook until it takes on a golden color. Take care not to let the garlic get too dark, as it will become bitter.
  • Remove garlic from the oil.
  • Drain the finished spaghetti and add to the pan with olive oil.
  • Spice with pepper, mix everything, and serve with parsley.


  • For a stronger taste slice the garlic and leave in the olive oil when adding the pasta.
  • Fry the parsley in the oil.
