Quick and Easy Spaghetti and Spices

Recipe by  

"A tasty spaghetti with olive oil instead of the traditional tomato sauce. This is great with bread topped with the olive oil sauce and Provolone cheese that's been toasted in the oven."

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Stir 1/4 cup olive oil and basil into water. Cook spaghetti in the boiling water, stirring occasionally, until cooked through but firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Drain and return to pot.
  2. Heat remaining olive oil in a small pot over medium heat. Cook and stir onion, garlic, thyme, and sea salt in hot oil until fragrant and softened, 8 to 10 minutes. Pour olive mixture over spaghetti and stir.

The flavor is okay, but would definitely be better with fresh herbs. My problem Is that there was way way too much oil. I wish I had followed what I know instead of the recipe. The noodles were dripping oil. Very unappetizing. The oil can be reduced by 1/2. A Tablespoon or less in the water and 1/4 to 1/3 cup over the noodles would be so much better.
