This is a variation of Spaghetti Oliette, which was handed down through my husband's Italian family to mean 'spaghetti with olive oil'. We usually make this as a side dish with olive oil, garlic & seasonings. I've added shrimp, sausage & broccoli to make a delicious light meal!
Don't let the instructions scare you off! It really is not hard at all. It's just that this recipe utilizes a couple of pots & colanders, and a skillet to cook each part.
