Recipe: Beef and Basil Spagetti Aglio Olio
Aglio olio means oil and garlic. This is a very simple yet very tasty pasta dish that we love to make at home. Lots of garlic in this dish but it's what makes it so fragrant. Not to mention, garlic is full of health benefits!
Whole wheat pasta (this is my favorite brand)
Pastured ground beef
Fresh basil leaves
A lot of fresh garlic, slice thinly
Red chili, slice thinly (optional)
Extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper
1. Boil pasta with a bit of salt and oil until al dente.
2. On low heat, heat up extra virgin olive oil (be a little bit generous on this one), add in garlic and red chili until it's fragrant. Add ground beef, salt and pepper, and sautée until it's cooked.
3. Mix in pasta and basil leaves in the end. Cook for a few minutes.
4. You can add in the parmesan cheese into the pasta or sprinkle on your plate before eating.
