Aglio Olio Pasta


Nothing can make you feel more satisfied than making a dish from scratch. I made the simplest of pastas Aglio Olio Pasta with homemade angel hair pasta.

My priceless possession – pasta rolling machine bought at Italy has been put to decently good use ever since I bought it but just realized that I dint post any recipe that I made using them!!! Sometimes it just happens that I get so overwhelmed by the taste that I completely forget to take pics of the dish :(

I shall surely post the recipe of pasta from scratch as soon as possible. That's a promise! :)



Angel hair pasta / spegatti - 300 gms
Garlic – 6 pods
Olive oil – 2 tblsp
Dry red chillies or chilli flakes
Water to boil the pasta
Salt – for taste


Step 1: Chop garlic into fine pieces.

Step 2: Measure your homemade pasta or use the store bought angel hair pasta or spaghetti. 


Step 3: All your need next is the olive oil and chilly flakes. I used extra virgin olive oil that I picked up at Italy. 

If you are using dried whole red chillies then chop them finely. I used ready chilly flakes instead. 


Step 4: Boil 2 ltrs of water with some salt and oil added to it. Put the pasta into the water and cook. It took just 3 minutes since I used freshly homemade pasta. It might take upto 10 mins if you use store bought dried pasta. 

Step 5: Drain the water and keep it aside. 


Step 6: Take olive oil in a large pan and saute the finely chopped garlic and chilly flakes. 

Step 7: Add the cooked pasta and toss until it is well mixed. 


Step 8: Serve hot and enjoy eating. 

You can add some crushed pepper too to make it spicy but bet on me it tastes awesome as it is!
