Spaghetti aglio, olio e peperoncino ("spaghetti with garlic, olive oil and chili peppers" in Italian ) is a traditional Italian pasta dish, said to originate traditionally from the region of Abruzzo, although it is popular across the country.
Usually served with spaghetti, the sauce is made by lightly sauteeing minced or pressed garlic in olive oil, sometimes with the addition of dried red chilli flakes. Finely chopped parsley can also be added as a garnish.
