Garlic Parsley Spaghetti

Garlic Parsley Spaghetti really packs a punch! It is so simple, but really flavourful.  The Italian name for this dish is Aglio e Olio.

Be sure to use the best extra virgin olive oil you can find. It will make all the difference to the final dish.

If you are using Peetz S.M.A.R.T Homemade Pasta recipe ( and we really suggest you try it!) and you don’t have the attachment to cut spaghetti, then make linguine or fettuccini instead. It won’t make a difference in deliciousness!
