How do you make it and why is it unique?
This is obscenely delicious; its soooooo deceptive. The recipe's bonkers so just trust me...
warm some serving bowls
Boil up a stash of spaghetti. Just before you drain it, remember to take out 2 tablespoons of the pasta water and keep it for later!
Pour 3 tablespoons of oil into the pan, at a superlow heat, (try 1 or 1.5, not even close to simmering heat), add the mashed garlic (except one tablespoon!) and let it cook for 12 minutes or until it goes golden, it should smell nutty. Don't let any of it get crispy! It should get really weird; it might turn blue and hopefully should get really frothy like soapsuds! Definitely stir it constantly.
Add to the spaghetti: ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â¾ teaspoon salt, the saved 2 tablespoons of pasta water, the cooked oily garlic (inc. the oil) the raw tablespoon of mashed garlic, 3 tablespoons of olive oil, the parsley and the lemon juice. Mix really well, sprinkle the parmesan on top & serve fast.
