Easy Garlic Pepper Spaghetti

A light and easy weeknight meal

  • Yield: 8 servings
  • Prep time: 5 Minutes
  • Cook time: 15 Minutes


  • 1 box(es) multi grain pasta cook as directed
  • 5 clove(s) garlic finely minced
  • 5 teaspoon(s) chili pepper flakes (or less, whatever)
  • 1/2 cup(s) extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon(s) salt
  • 1 teaspoon(s) pepper


1. Cook spaghetti according to directions on package until al dente.

2. Strain spaghetti and place in a over sized serving dish (trust me on this - I used a proper sized serving dish and a good quarter of my pasta ended up on my floor).

3. Add olive oil and toss until noodles are fluid and move easily (keep in mind - fluid does not mean soggy. It means evenly coated).

4. Add salt, pepper, garlic and chili flakes - toss well. Note: I use an abnormal amount of chili flakes... 5 teaspoons is a lot. So if you're not like me (impervious to spicy food) then I would use less - say about 2 1/2 teaspoons for the average Joe or Sally.

5. Serve warm with some light greens - like a fresh spring salad! Or if you're a carb consuming freak like me, a fresh buttery baguette - toasted of course.
