Garlicky Fettucine with Pine Nuts
From: Karen C. Greenlee

Recipe by Susie Kaufman; Serving Size:4

  • 1/4 pint olive oil
  • 3 dried chilies -- sliced
  • 4 garlic cloves -- skinned and crushed
  • 12 oz fettucine -- cooked 'al dente'
  • 2 oz pine nuts -- browned under the grill
  • 3 tbsp chopped fresh basil
Heat the oil in a pan, add the chilies and gently infuse for 5 minutes.
Set aside to cool, then remove the chiles.
Return the pan to a low heat, add the garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes to soften.
Pour the flavored oil over the hot, drained fettucine.
Toss with the pine nuts and chopped basil until well done.
Serve immediately.

NOTES:
Serves 4 -- One for garlic-lovers, but beware, it could be anti-social!
The amount of garlic infused in the oil is large, but necessary for the simply delicious taste and aroma of this dish.
A hint of chili and the creamy crunch of pine nuts also flavors these thin, flat noodles.
