Directions

  1. Prep ingredients while water boils for pasta- sauce is quickly prepared once spaghetti is cooking.
  2. Heat a heavy based pan (large enough to hold the cooked pasta later on).
  3. Add oil, garlic, chile, ginger, salt and pepper and continue heating until pieces begin sizzling, and garlic is starting to turn golden.
  4. Add the parsley and lemon/vinegar, lower heat and keep warm until pasta is cooked.
  5. When pasta is done, use tongs (or two large forks) to put directly from the water into the hot sauce in the pan and toss, adding more salt and pepper to taste, if necessary.
  6. Serve immediately, offering optional additional black pepper, grated cheese (for non-Umbrians), and a fire extinguisher (for non-chile lovers).
