With vibrant notes of garlic and herbs, this spaghetti preparation is a rare experience to savour. Olive oil and butter give the Garlic Spaghetti (Aglio e Olio) a nice, moist coating with the elegant aroma of olive oil, while a splash of herbs and chilli flakes gives it a heart warming flavour. Enjoy the Garlic Spaghetti fresh and hot, because any dish with garlic will lose its original flavour if it is not enjoyed hot.
