Work on the ingredients
Boil a large pot of water. In the meantime, wash the chili pepper, slice it widthwise and remove the seeds. Peel the garlic cloves, remove the inner sprout from each, and cut them into slices.
Prepare the sauce
Heat 4 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil in a frying pan with a handle and high rim ideal for tossing the pasta. Add the garlic slices and let them brown over moderate heat, taking care not to burn them. Add the prepared chili pepper, adjusting the amount to taste, and let the oil flavor, then turn off the heat.
Cook the pasta
Salt the water you have brought to a boil and cook the pasta following the time indicated on the package. Drain them slightly al dente and transfer them to the pan with the oil, garlic, and chili pepper.
Complete the dish
Sauté the pasta with garlic, oil, and chili for a few moments and add another 4 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil, this time raw, before serving. If you wish, you can also add finely chopped parsley.
