Aglio Olio e Peperoncino: an Italian lifestyle recipe explained, no secrets?

Aglio Olio e Peperoncino is more than just a dish; it’s a quintessential representation of the Italian lifestyle—a lifestyle defined by its ingredients’ quality.

But the point is: Is it possible to create an authentic Aglio Olio e Peperoncino without top-notch ingredients? Perhaps, but for a truly exceptional experience, it’s best to choose something else.
Here’s our simple yet exquisite version, crafted with our extra virgin olive oil and artisanal spaghetti from our friends. Indulge in the flavors, and enjoy your meal anytime—not just at midnight 🙂

Yes, because this dish is the famous Italian midnight spaghetti, the one that Italians must make if they are running late and going low on sugar.

It is also part of the Italian style to enjoy food until the end, and since you may have been drinking, why not accompany it with something to eat? Here, a simple and excessive lifestyle shows how strongly Italians attach themselves to this food. The old ‘tria’ brought by the Arabs to Sicily (we wrote here) became an essential food for Italians. And so, what better way to celebrate it than to add the most basic of sauces? Here it is sauté garlic in extra virgin olive oil and add a little chili pepper. Then there will be hundreds of methods: add water, soak dried chili, use only fresh chili, etc. But it all revolves around four ingredients and one style, the same yet always different style.

Interesting to know that this was also a poor man’s recipe, or maybe a recipe that people liked better.

Simple flavors often win and stay longer.
