1 pound spaghetti
8 each garlic
cloves, chopped
¼ cup vegetable oil
½ cup parsley leaves
fresh, chopped
¼ cup basil
fresh, chopped
¼ cup chives
fresh, chopped
4 tablespoons sage
fresh, chopped
1 x salt
to taste
1 x black pepper
to taste


Cook spaghetti until al dente. Meanwhile, heat the garlic in the olive oil until it smells fragrant, just a few moments. Toss in the herbs & remove from the heat.

Drain the pasta & toss in the pan with the garlicky herbs. Season & serve & do not add cheese as it only interferes with the herby flavours. Be sure to add enough salt & pepper, however.

VARIATION: Omit the basil altogether. Replace the sage with any of the following fresh herbs: marjoram; oregano; thyme; rosemary or tarragon. Conversely, reduce the amount of sage & add a little of all these herbs.

This recipe makes me think to another traditional Italian dish, Spaghetti with fresh herbs and Pecorino, a simple but tasty pasta dish. The ingredients are almost the same, but we add also mint, marjoram and Pecorino cheese.
