Pasta with Garlic, Olive oil and Pepper

We prepared another delicious vegan dish, this time coming directly from Naples, Italy: pasta with garlic and olive oil (and pepper, optionally)! Ideal choice when you want to eat something delicious and fast to prepare.

It is a simple and traditional dish, full of flavors and aroma, and with ingredients that we all have at home. All you need is, basically, pasta, olive oil, garlic and parsley for serving.

Pasta with garlic

The quantity of garlic might be huge but it’s not! We’ve added red pepper as well to have more variety and colors in our dish. If you like spicy dishes, replace the sweet red pepper with a chili one.
