Spaghetti Aglio Olio e Peperoncino

Spaghetti aglio olio e peperoncino is one of the simplest, fastest and classic Italian dishes. I fall in love with Italian food with this dish: I was amazed how the right amount of ingredients can bring out a very distinct flavor. It has already been my favorite Italian dish since long ago. However, when I was in Italy, I noticed that it did not require a lot of olive oil and garlic as I had seen in many recipes. As you know, too much is as bad as too little! You will need only a few ingredients – spaghetti, garlic (aglio), oil (olio), chili (peperoncino) and Italian parsley – in the right amount.

Making homemade tagliatelle

I was going to make Lasagna dough the other night but, suddenly changed my mind to tagliatelle.The reason? I don’t know maybe that’s because the dough came out pretty good than I expected.

If you are familiar with tagliatelle, probably you know it is not cheap at all. The ingredients are nothing special though. It only needs some flour, eggs and a pinch of salt. quite simple! I made porcini mushrooms tagliatelle but, unfortunately I didn’t have Italian parsely at home for garnish so could not take some pictures. I do care too much about food style and presentaion.
