This is more of a method than anything else. We're infusing olive oil with garlic and red pepper flakes. You can pick your favorite herbs and infuse the oil to your taste to make your favorite comfort pasta.Pasta Mezanotte -
Cook 1 lb. of angel hair pasta until al-dente (about 7-9 minutes) and drain.
While pasta is cooking, heat a large skillet over medium heat and add 1/4 cup of extra virgin, 2 tablespoons red pepper flakes and 3 cloves of garlic thinly sliced. This is a slightly slow process to infuse the oil with the garlic flavor and the heat from the red pepper flakes. Once the oil begins to bubble around the garlic slices, turn off the heat.
Add the cooked angel hair pasta to the skillet, along with 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano, and 1/4 cup chopped flat leaf parsley. Combine and serve immediately.
