  • 1 lb spaghetti, linguine, vermicelli, or other long thin pasta
  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 6 - 8 garlic cloves, minced or whole - more to taste
  • 1 small dried hot red chili, broken into 2 or 3 pieces, or 1/4 t hot red pepper flakes or more to taste
  • 3 TBS minced flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 anchovy fillets (crushed), or a squeeze from a tube of anchovy paste (optional)
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste
OO Pasta pot, wok or frying pan large enough for all ingredients (pasta goes into pan at the end).

METHOD:

  6. USUALLY not served with Parmesan - to your own taste.
