Who would've thought such a simple dish would offer such culinary satisfaction, when this bowl was first placed in front of me in Italy, I thought maybe there was no food in the house so they were giving me some white spaghetti with some garlic and oil, I think there's much to understand about the italians before you can appreciate this dish, spaghetti with olive oil, garlic and chilli, topped with some parmesan if you wish. Simple right? Yes, but simple is good, and the italians have simplicity down to a fine art.
Simplicity and satisfaction in a bowl.
