When I made the Three Pepper Sauté the other day, I mentioned serving it with some spaghetti with oil and garlic. The spaghetti with oil and garlic is a Silver Palate recipe and one I've been using for years.
Here's the basic run down, it's so easy. I put the Silver Palate recipe at the end of the post.
After the pasta is cooked until tender but still firm. Drain the pasta well and put back into the pot.
Add chicken broth to the pasta and simmer until most of the broth has been absorbed.
Then add the garlic infused olive oil.
Easy, peasy and soooooo delicious. The chicken broth makes all the difference in this dish.
