(from The New American Olive Oil,by Fran Gage) 4 to 6 servings Ingredients:Our 2009 Olio Nuovo should be available for a few more weeks both online and in our Ferry Building shop. The New American Olive Oil by Fran Gage is available in our Ferry Building shop.
Instructions: Bring about 5 quarts of generously salted water to boil in a large pot. Add the spaghetti and cool until al dente, about 12 minutes. While the pasta is cooking, heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil in a small pot over medium heat until it trembles, becomes aromatic, and easily coats the bottom of the pan. Add the garlic and cook until lightly browned, about 1 minute. Add the red chile flakes and turn off the heat. Drain the pasta. Add the oil with the garlic and pepper, the remaining 4 tablespoons of oil, and a sprinkling of fleur de sel. Toss until all the strands of pasta glisten. Serve immediately.
