- Boil spaghetti in sufficiently salted water until al dente.
- Peel cloves of garlic and crush them gently with the heel of hand.
- Heat 2–3 mm olive oil 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.
