Aglio e Olio
origins of this sauce recipe are usually traced back to Abruzzo, an Italian region which is an isolated vicinity around 50 miles east of Rome. This region was once distinguished by its poverty and underdevelopment. Aglio e Olio is a basic sauce which only needs minced or pressed garlic sautéed gently in Olive oil until it turns barely crisp. Traditionally, the garlic-oil combination is tossed with grated hard cheeses like Parmesan or Romano and is served covered with long pastas. My wife introduced this recipe from her mom to me in 1976. My wife's father (who passed in 1981) this was one of his favorite meals.<
This is not my picture, the next time I cook it I will update it, but this is very good, and easy to make.

My father was oldest of 10 from immigrant Italian parents. Very poor. Many meatless meals. Aglio e Olio was often on the table. I love it. Thanks for the reminder. Haven't had it in a long time.

This is one of my favorite "quick and easy" things to make when I come home late and hungry! I sometimes saute shrimp with the garlic to add some body to it. A little lemon zest also perks it up a bit.
