Directions

40 minutes
  • 1Bring a large pot of water to a boil, and salt the water well (about 2 tablespoons of kosher salt).
  • 2Add the pasta and cook according to package instructions until just al dante or a little before (mine took about 9 minutes).
  • 3Before you drain the pasta, make sure to reserve about 1 ½ cups of the pasta cook water.
  • 4Meanwhile, 4 minutes after you add the pasta to the boiling water, warm the olive oil in a large pan over medium heat.
  • 5Add the garlic and cook for about 2 to 3 minutes, tossing regularly until the garlic is just turning golden brown (manage the heat well so that the garlic does not overcook).
  • 6Add the red pepper flakes and toss for 30 seconds or so. If the pasta is not ready, move the oil off the heat for now.
  • 7Carefully ladle the reserved pasta cooking water in the pan.
  • 8Bring to a simmer until the liquid reduces by about ⅓.
  • 9Add the cooked pasta and toss around for a couple of minutes.
  • 10Turn the heat off and add the parmesan and parsley.
  • 11Toss to combine.
  • 12Allow the pasta a couple more minutes to rest and absorb the sauce.
  • 13Serve with more Parmesan and red pepper flakes to the side.
