Chef Chuck's Linguine and Garlic


Linguine Aglio Olio e Peperoncino

Pasta, garlic and peppers is a flavorful, quick and easy recipe to make. These ingredients are all homegrown from my garden which makes this dish close to my heart. All the flavors of Italy. I used red nubian garlic, which has a wonderful sweetness to it. I infused the oil with stromboli hot chile peppers, which originited from one of the great islands, any hot pepper will work.



Pasta and Garlic
1/2 pound pasta
4 garlic cloves, minced
4 tablespoons olive oil
red hot pepper flakes
salt and pepper to taste
parmigiano cheese, grated
2 stromboli peppers, whole

In a large pot of heavily salted boiling water, cook pasta of your choice till al dente. During the last minute of cooking the pasta, in a frying pan heat olive oil on medium heat. Add garlic, peppers and pepper flakes to infuse the oil, stir for 30 seconds to 1 minute, be careful not to burn the garlic. Add cooked pasta to oil, season with more red hot pepper flakes, salt and pepper. Grate parmigiano cheese over the dish, serves 2.
