Spicy Spaghetti with Sausage, Garlic, and Olive Oil

DaVinci Pasta's recreation of the traditional Italian Spaghetti Aglio e Olio e Salsiccia. Made with DaVinci Spaghetti.

Servings: 4   |    Prep: 10 mins   |    Cook: 15 mins

Ingredients

1 16 oz package Davinci Spaghetti pasta
1 lb spicy Italian Sausage, casings removed*
4 tablespoons Olive Oil, divided in 2
6-8 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
¼ - ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 cup parmesan cheese, finely grated
¾ cup chopped parsley, plus more for serving
Salt and Pepper

Directions

1. Cook pasta according to package instructions, leaning towards the al dente side (about 7-8 minutes) as the pasta will continue to cook later. Reserve about 2 cups of pasta water before draining.
2. Heat the olive oil in a large pot over medium-high heat, then add the uncased sausage, breaking it up into bite-sized pieces as it cooks. Cook until all sides are browned, then remove the sausage from the pot and set aside. Add 2 tablespoons of the Olive Oil to the pot, then add the garlic, chili flakes (add more or less depending on desired spice level), and a pinch of salt. Cook for 3-4 minutes until the garlic begins to turn golden, then add the sausage back into the pot.
3. Transfer the cooked and drained pasta to the large pot with the sausage, and toss until the pasta is evenly coated. Then add the parmesan cheese, parsley, salt, pepper, and about 1 cup of pasta water, and continue to toss until the cheese has melted. Add more pasta water if the sauce seems dry.
4. Serve immediately with more cheese, parsley, and an extra drizzle of olive oil.
