Spaghetti with Oil, Garlic, and Spices Recipe

I love pasta. It is my weakness. Spaghetti is usually what I cook most times but my husband gets tired of the tomato sauce. I was wanting pasta so I compromised and found something without the sauce.

Spaghetti with Oil, Garlic and Spices

I did change the amount of red pepper that goes into this recipe. I made it and it was way to spicy. We burned our mouths on it. So the recipe is updated to the amount that won’t make you run for water.
