Spaghetti Aglio Olio and Peperoncino
Spaghetti "ajo e oio e peperoncino" in roman slang, in correct Italian "aglio, olio e peperoncino" spaghetti with garlic, olive oil and red chili pepper is the quickest and easiest I know. Often it is prepared in Italy in the summer evenings at midnight to celebrate with friends since this recipe is very simple and fast. The recipe is very spicy and hot. It is not considered a real recipe in italy, but an easy way to prepare pasta especially when camping outside the home as it requires very few ingredients. In restaurants in Italy it is hard to find because nobody would pay for a dish so simple but I assure you, if well prepared, it is excellent!!!
