1 pound uncooked spaghetti
kosher salt & freshly ground pepper
1/3 cup olive oil
6 medium garlic cloves, peeled and thinly sliced
1/4 cup finely chopped parsley
freshly grated Parmesan cheese for serving


1. Bring a large pot of water and 1/2 tsp salt to a boil over medium-high heat. Cook the spaghetti, stirring occasionally, until al dente (firm to the bite), about 10 minutes or according to package directions. Drain the pasta, reserving about 1/2 cup of the pasta water, and set aside.

2. Heat the oil in a large saute pan over medium heat. Add the garlic slices and cook, while stirring, until the garlic is lightly browned and fragrant, about 1 minute.

3. Take the pan off the heat. Add the cooked spaghetti and parsley to the pan and toss to coat. Add some of the reserved pasta water until it's a desired consistency. Season with salt & freshly ground pepper to taste and serve with freshly grated Parmesan.
