Grab a Forkful of Happiness by Making This Garlicky Spaghetti Immediately

Allow me, a critical pasta addict, to deliver we to my favorite pasta recipe. Olive oil, garlic, red peppers flakes, lemon, white wine, thyme, parmesan cheese, and a splash of happy tears join army to emanate a resolutely flavored salsa that comes together in tiny minutes. If you’ve got all a mixture on hand, you’re on your approach to a fast and easy Italian dinner that will fill we with pristine joy.

I like to start by mincing a garlic and zesting and juicing a lemons so that all is prepared to go when it’s time to supplement it to a pan. Once all is prepped, a whole plate comes together in no time.

Warning: your place will be filled with a distilled aroma of garlic and white booze (better than even a dessert-scented candle, in my opinion), so get prepared to be showered with compliments if you’ve got others around. If not, this creates smashing leftovers we can have for a subsequent integrate of days.
