Garlic and Pepper Spaghettini
By: Jennifer McLagan

  • 1 head of garlic
  • 1 sweet red pepper
  • 2/3 to a whole hot red pepper, such as Serrano
  • ¼ cup (50 mL) olive oil
  • Salt
  • 7 oz (200 g) spaghettini
  • Freshly ground pepper
  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Meanwhile separate and peel the garlic cloves. Slice them thinly, then set aside. Seed, and then dice both of the peppers.
  2. In a large skillet, heat the oil; add the peppers and cook, stirring until the peppers have softened, about 5 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium-low and add the garlic. Cook the garlic, stirring for about 10 minutes or until the garlic caramelizes.
  3. Add a generous amount of salt to the boiling water, then cook the spaghettini until al dente. Drain and toss with pepper and garlic mixture, season and add a little more olive oil if necessary.
