Angel Hair Pasta with Garlic and Chili Flakes

I love this pasta dish. Easy to make and garlic comes out so delicious!!!


angel hair pasta (Capellini), 1/2 package or 8 oz.
1 big garlic, cloves peeled and sliced into 1/8 inch thick slices
chili flakes dried
olive oil enough to cover garlic in a pot
salt, 2 teaspoons
parsley or cilantro, chopped for garnish


Pour oil into a small pot, add garlic, salt and chili flakes and let garlic cook slowly on low heat for about 25 minutes. Be careful not to burn it. Stir occasionally. After about 20 minutes when you see garlic getting soft and brown cook angel hair pasta following instructions on a package. Once pasta is cooked, transfer it into a big bowl, pour the garlic and olive oil mixture and toss. Serve with some chopped parsley or cilantro. I usually serve it with roasted cauliflower, the recipe for which I posted earlier.
