Spaghetti with Garlic, Olive Oil, and Spicy Bread Crumbs
Spaghetti is always a quick, easy weeknight meal-but it doesn't have to be boring.
Why This Recipe Works
Not much can be as satisfying and simple a meal as a hearty helping of garlicky pasta. This easy Spaghetti with Garlic, Olive Oil, and Spicy Bread Crumbs recipe requires only the staples you most likely already have on hand. While developing this recipe, we found it important to cook the garlic until just golden—if it became too dark, it would impart an undesirable bitter taste. We also used hearty sandwich bread that stood up well to food processing: thin, moist breads merely balled up and became soggy when cooked in oil.
