Aglio Oglio


Here is something for those busy days. The Aglio Oglio is simple and versatile; you can change things up so easily by adding some canned tuna, cheese, parsley etc. We usually see it made with spaghetti, but it's also something you could make with whatever pasta you have on hand. In our version we used fusilli along with just some minced curry leaves and sliced cheddar cheese.


Serves: 2



  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 2 dried chilies
  • 2 cups pasta
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 10 curry leaves
  • 4 slices of sliced cheddar cheese





  1. Bring the water to a boil

  2. Add pasta, salt and 1 tbsp olive oil

  3. Cook the spaghetti or pasta according to packet instructions

  4. In the meantime mince the garlic, curry leaves and chillies

  5. Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a saucepan and add garlic, curry leaves and chillies, cook for 5 minutes on low heat

  6. Once the spaghetti is cooked, drain

  7. Set aside some pasta cooking water

  8. Mix the pasta into the olive oil, garlic, curry leaves and chili mixture

  9. Combine well and add some pasta cooking water if it becomes dry

  10. Add the cheese, mix well and it is done
