In medieval Italy, a distinct cuisine prevailed: feudal lords ate meat, and peasants had to invent dishes by hand. Pasta allio-olio (spaghetti with garlic and butter) is a legacy of that time. It is worth noting that an aromatic and tasty dish is obtained from a minimum of ingredients and is not difficult to cook.

You will need:

  • Spaghetti 500 g;
  • Garlic 8 cloves;
  • Chili pepper 2 pieces;
  • Parsley 50 g.;
  • Olive oil 100 ml;
  • Lemon ½ pieces;
  • Salt to taste;
  • Ground black pepper to taste.
