Spaghetti Olio e Aglio

Written by Anne Radcliffe

I know an awful lot of people are intimidated by the kitchen. Many think preparing a good meal takes a lot of time and energy, a massive grocery shopping trip, or a lot of culinary skill and an iron-clad recipe.

Today, say hello to my little friend Spaghetti Olio e Aglio (literally, Spaghetti with Oil and Garlic)–Italian’s original fast food. It may not look like it, but it’s a rock-star in the kitchen.

Don’t bother with the drive-thru! This recipe comes together in about 10 minutes—the same amount of time that it takes to cook the spaghetti. It takes no special ingredients. It’s elegant and delicious as is, but the real beauty of this recipe is its flexibility.

Anne usually speaks in memes and SAT words, and she frequently attempts to explain the laws of physics and high school chemistry according to the kitchen via her home blog FoodRetro. If you want to know why ice melts or pretzels turn brown, and you want to make food that you never imagined could be made from scratch in the process, she's your blogger. Her friends describe her as "hilarious when you get to know her," but it could be that they are just amused by the way she gets riled up when reading the paper. She can also be found playing the part of community editor and grammar nazi here on BLUNTmoms.
