Parsley Spaghetti

Parsley Spaghetti is a dish I had quite a bit as a kid and only remembered it a few years ago. It’s a great side dish that goes with just about anything…beef, pork, or chicken!

Difficulty Level: Easy
Time Required: Prep Time – 5 min; Cook Time –  15 minutes

Ingredients:

1 package of thin spaghetti
1/4 cup olive oil
6-8 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup of parsley, chopped
Salt to taste
1 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes, optional

Preparing Parsley Spaghetti:

Cook spaghetti according to directions in large pot of salted water. Drain. Pour the oil into the same pot and add garlic. Heat on medium-high until the garlic starts to sizzle, about 1 minute. Add parsley (and crushed red pepper, if desired) and cook for 30 sec. Add the spaghetti and toss to coat. Salt to taste. Serve!

Variations:

Put as much or as little garlic in as it suits your tastes. The crushed red pepper obviously gives it a little kick. I don’t put it in when I serve it to kids, but it does add a nice flavor.

Got Leftovers?

When there are leftovers, I will often put them in my kids’ lunches the next day. It heats up well!
