How To Make roasted spaghetti with garlic and olive oil

  • 2
    Set a large pot of water on the stove and add salt. Once boiling cook the roasted spaghetti until al dente. This will take longer than usual due to the spaghetti being roasted. About 35 to 40 minutes. Drain and reserve 1 cup of pasta water.
  • 3
    Heat the oil in a skillet and add the garlic and red pepper flakes and cook 30 seconds. Add the spaghetti, lemon zest and juice. Start with 1/2 cup of the pasta water to make a sauce add more if needed.
