Spaghetti with Garlic and Oil

Essentially this recipe is pasta in garlic oil, but cooked correctly, this dish results in something really special: a perfectly scented, garlic and chili-infused extra virgin oil wrapped around al dente pasta. 


  • 150 g Loprofin Spaghetti
  • 6 garlic cloves, sliced thinly
  • 1/2 tsp dried red chili flakes
  • 2 Tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • Sea salt and black pepper


  1. Cook the Loprofin Spaghetti as per packet instructions. While the spaghetti is cooking, place a large frying pan over medium-high heat and add the olive oil. 
  2. Fry the garlic until slightly golden. Add in the red chili flakes and fry for a further minute. Before draining the pasta, reserve 1 cup of the cooking water to make the sauce.
  3. Add the oil with garlic and chili flakes, 3 fl oz of reserved cooking water and chopped parsley to the cooked pasta and toss until the pasta is evenly coated. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Serve immediately.
