Spaghetti Aglio e olio | Classic Spaghetti Pasta Recipe with Garlic and Herbs

Spaghetti Aglio e olio

Hi Supermoms,

Aglio e Olio ( Ah-lyoh ay aw-lyoh ) is a very popular spaghetti pasta recipe that has the flavours of garlic and olive oil infused in them. Every home has it's own style of making this pasta. It is so simple yet full of flavours.

Though this pasta does not require any other vegetable ( other than garlic and herbs), I have added colourful vegetables to make it more attractive for my family. The best part of this pasta is that there is no sauce involved. So, it can be made within a few minutes and all you need is handful of garlic, cheese and herbs . Of course, adding cheese is also completely optional.
