"This is my second order for your oregano and I would like to say that it is the "BEST" I have ever used. It is better, much better, than my own home grown oregano. I want to thank you people for a superior product that I absolutely love and so do the friends I share it with...God Bless"   Charles W.,  Plainville, Connecticut

Spaghetti with Garlic and Olive Oil
Spaghetti with Garlic and Olive Oil
(Spaghetti Aglio e Olio d'Oliva)

About 1 and 1/2 large heads garlic, separated into cloves (about 30)
5 and 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 teaspoon dried hot red pepper flakes
1 lb spaghetti
1 and 1/2 teaspoons finely grated fresh lemon zest
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup finely chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
Finely grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese

Peel garlic without crushing cloves and thinly slice lengthwise as evenly as possible (you should have about 1 cup; peel and slice more if necessary).

Cook garlic in 4 tablespoons (1/4 cup) olive oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over moderately low heat, stirring occasionally, until just golden, 7 to 10 minutes.

Transfer garlic with a slotted spoon to a bowl. (Garlic will crisp as it cools.)

Add hot pepper flakes to skillet and cook, stirring, 1 minute, then remove skillet from heat.

Meanwhile, cook spaghetti in a 6 to 8-quart pot of boiling until 'al dente'.

Reserve 1 cup cooking water, then drain spaghetti in a colander.

Stir zest and salt into olive oil in skillet, then add spaghetti, parsley, and 1/2 cup reserved cooking water.

Toss over moderately high heat until combined well, 30 seconds to 1 minute, adding enough reserved cooking water to keep spaghetti moist.

Add half of garlic and toss.

Remove from heat and toss pasta with remaining 1 and 1/2 tablespoons olive oil and salt and pepper to taste.

Transfer to a serving bowl and sprinkle with remaining garlic. Makes 4 main-course servings.
