    • +Far from Irrational Lol. I didn’t say I’d be throwing it away.

      Though now that I think about it, would it be possible to simply mash the
      garlic using a mortar and pestle to achieve the same effect without having
      to deal with the annoying texture?

    • +SS4Xanatos thats perfectly fine, the only difference will be cooking time.
      Since its minced or mashed set the heat a bit lower and make sure it
      doesn’t get 2 brown. You want to infuse the oil, not burn the garlic.

    • some people crush the garlic clove with the back of the knife so it is
      still in one piece and then they take it out when it is done cooking.

    • It takes less than 10 minutes and almost no effort to make (just cutting up
      the garlic, takes maybe 3 min), it’s a great recipe for beginners and very
      fun to make 🙂

    • +nibbleninjas Not to mention experimenting with different ingredients
      according to your taste. It makes for a fun evening.

    • +Chitra Adkar It’s not an overly expensive hobby (you got to eat anyway)
      and good food made at home is much less expensive and more satisfying than
      buying it at a restaurant.
      I’m not saying jump totally into cooking all meals, but when you have the
      time, target a couple of evenings or afternoons to “express yourself” in
      the kitchen. It’s a stress reliever for me.

  1. I just made this and no joke here, I didn’t have red pepper flake so I
    added a little shake of Cayenne.

    Update: Holy crap this came out great! I may tinker with it next time I
    make it, but man. Chef John says it so good for you, body, mind , and
    spirit. He wasn’t kidding , I feel pretty good right now

    • No it wasn’t strong. It came out as Chef John said it would. It really does
      have a mild garlic flavor. I just wish I had some red pepper flake or some
      fresh basil to add.

  2. I made this yesterday per your video. My Italian husband came in and looked
    at it while I was cutting garlic and made a face. I said what? He just
    smiled. He ate two big bowls.

  3. No no no this is not authentic at all. You always rinse the pasta. And you
    forgot the two most crucial ingredients, ketchup and cheddar cheese powder.
    Trust me, I’m a real Italian.
