Growing up, this pasta dish was served with everything. It is absolute heaven for garlic lovers out there. Like many Sicilian dishes, it’s loaded with it. Every time I make it, it brings back memories of my mother’s kitchen. My whole kitchen fills up with the aroma of basil and garlic.

Take care to make this with vegetarian parmesan. Most parmesan contains animal rennet (aka animal enzyme,) however a few brands do not. BelGioioso is a common one that you find at the grocery store. Make sure to keep the olive oil on low heat to avoid it smoking. Olive oil gives a wonderful flavor to this dish, however overheating it will destroy all of the health benefits of the oil.

I’ll often serve this with broccoli, and dinner is done!
