Fettucine Aglio e Olio

I know what you’re thinking. What is “I Oy” mean? It’s how my Italian family pronounced Aglio e olio pasta. A famous Italian pasta sauce consisting of good olive oil, toasted garlic, fresh herbs, and lemon. A delicious garlic pasta with a snappy name, “I Oy”. Now because my mom didn’t salt her pasta water much, she would sprinkle parmesan on it at the end to add a little extra seasoning. I wasn’t opposed to it when I was younger. Now we salt our water…liberally… no more pinches. This is a family staple at my mom’s house, especially with broccoli and chicken. You’re gonna love this one!

These are sophisticated buttered noodles. We all loved and grew up with noodles. It’s just a way of life. If you’ve never tried making I Oy, it’s definitely worth trying. Low cost and few ingredient recipes are my jam.

Technically I Oy is a great way to learn how to properly cook, sauce, and season your pasta. Salt, fat, acid, and heat are the rules for flavor, as Samin Nosrat says. Salt in the pasta water, Fat in the olive oil, Acid in the lemon, and Heat in the garlic chili oil. We not only use the pasta water to stop the cooking process of the garlic and chili but also to help infuse some of those flavors like parmesan into the al dente pasta. That’s right, al dente. It’s fine if you like your pasta to be soft, but at least finish cooking it in the flavorful garlic chili oil water. Taste your pasta in the water, boil to al dente and reserve your pasta water.
