Ingredients

⅓ cup (75 mL) extra-virgin olive oil, divided
⅓ cup (75 mL) bread crumbs (preferably panko)
4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
¼ tsp (1 mL) hot red chili flakes
3 tbsp (45 mL) chopped fresh parsley, divided
¾ lb (375 g) spaghetti
1 tsp (5 mL) salt, or more to taste
¼ tsp (1 mL) pepper

Directions

  1. Place 2 tbsp (25 mL) olive oil in a large, deep skillet and heat. Add bread crumbs and cook, stirring constantly, until lightly browned. Remove to a bowl and wipe pan clean with paper towels.
  2. Add remaining oil to pan, then add garlic and chili flakes. Cook gently until garlic is very fragrant and tender, but do not brown.
  3. Add half the parsley, then remove the pan from heat. If the garlic is browning too much, add ¼ cup (50 mL) water to the mix.
