Olive oil and garlic. I will give you the steps to make it and a few ideas on how to jazz it up but seriously, if you managed to boil water, you can do this.
And NO you cannot use Canola oil, or vegetable oil (It is really GMO cottonseed and soy oil, they just say vegetable to make it sound healthy) or the most dread of oil, Corn. If you do not have real extra virgin olive oil in the house then you have already failed hoarding 101 and you must get it with your next delivery.
Let’s take a minute to talk about Olive Oil. If you live in the US most of it is fake. Kirkland organic, California Olive Ranch and those expensive oils from Palestine are real. I love Italy, I love Italians but most of what they sell to the American market as olive oil is fake garbage.
For each portion take 1/4 cup of olive oil ( I never measure, but you can if you like) and 5 large cloves of garlic thinly sliced. Put both in a pan on low, while your water is on to boil. The house will begin to smell GREAT. You can allow the garlic to get a slight tan, but do not allow it to get dark or you will ruin the taste.
Save some pasta water and remove the spaghetti to finish cooking in the garlic and oil mix adding water as needed.
The dish is great just like this, but there are things you can add to jazz it up.
Red Pepper flakes
An anchovy melted into the oil
Broccoli or other green slightly cooked
Mushrooms toasted in butter
You can top with cheese, bread crumbs, herbs or eat it naked. If you are in quarantine both you and the pasta can be naked.
