- 400 g Dried spaghetti

Bring a large pot of salted water to the boil and add 100g of dried spaghetti. Set your timer to cook the pasta Al Dente.
Note: make sure your pasta water is nice and salty as that will be the seasoning for the pasta.
Add 100 ml of Extra virgin olive oil to a pan on low heat with four finely sliced cloves of garlic and one finely sliced red chilli. Let that infuse for 5mins then add the zest of 1 lemon.
Note: Make sure you use a high quality extra virgin olive oil.
Once your pasta is cooked, transfer with tongs abs toss through the olive oil. Add a handful of finely chopped flat leaf parsley, a good crack of black pepper and the juice of 1 lemon.
Add a ladle of pasta water to season and toss through just before serving and enjoy!
