Not every pasta sauce is tomato based. One of my favorites is Aglio e Olio (pronounced AH-lyoh ay OH-lyoh) which simply translates to “garlic and oil.” This is a tasty, simple sauce to use on spaghetti squash, or tossed in any pasta dish filled with fresh veggies from the market. Take a break from all the Labor Day grilling and mangia! Mangia! Here’s how to make it:

Generously coat the bottom of a saute pan with extra virgin olive oil, about 1/2 to 3/4 cup. Sliced 10-12 peeled garlic cloves and turn heat on low; you want to gently cook the garlic and not burn it.  The garlic slices should soften and turn golden. Remove the pan from the heat and toss in 2 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes and gently stir. Sprinkle in about 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt and a squeeze from one half of a lemon. Add a small handful of rough chopped fresh flat leaf parsley, stir, and use. Yields approximately 4 servings.
