spaghetti aglio olio

i love pasta. i love, love, LOVE pasta. it's so sedap. simply put. i made this for dinner. actually, narnee and i found this recipe here last ramadhan. i think between narnee, robot and i, we ate one whole packet worth of spaghetti. ha...amek ko! we were all fasting and craving for pasta, i went online and saw this recipe...earlier on, we bought all the stuff for some portobello pasta that narnee was supposed to make. aneeway, we found this recipe and the rest is HISTORY. sedap giler...very simple yet more will we go out and buy our aglio olio. buat je kat rumah. easy peasy. you want the recipe?

spaghetti, cooked al dente
a few cloves of garlic, chopped
2 stalks of dried chillies
chicken stock
olive oil

here's the best part about aglio can add in anything else that you want...this time round, i added, some sliced green and red capsicum, some brown swiss button mushrooms (no portobello in sight...boohoohoo), some sun dried tomatoes and some chicken fillet.

the how to:
1)  saute the garlic and dried chillies, be extra careful to not let the garlic brown.

2)  add in anything else that you want.

3)  then in goes the pasta.

4)  after that add in the chicken stock. if you want to add salt, please be careful because the chicken stock is already a tad salty.

5)  stir for a bit, or what i do is, i like to let everything simmer for a bit so that the pasta sort of like take in the stock. and then, you're done!

luck luck you guys!!!

it is! it is super easy and you should add in terung. my roomate tak gemar terung, that's why i omitted it from this dish.
