The earliest pasta was made of rice flour and was common in the east. If we go back to 3500 years ago, it is believed that the Aglio olio pasta recipe with whole wheat was consumed in the Shang Dynasty in China around 1700-1100 BC. But after that, Italy took the credit for making the dish renowned worldwide even though they did not invent it.
How is it Different from other Sauces?
This particular dish, Aglio olio, is not made of both red or white sauces. The Aglio olio is cooked in a pot of water, and then towards the final stage, broccoli is added, taking care not to overcook or thoroughly cook both the food ingredients. Then Aglio olio is drained and sauteed with olive oil, crushed garlic and pepper until the colour changes. Garnish with red chilli flakes, and the dish is done. Aglio Olio is considered a diet pasta recipe at most times as it has no sauce in it.
Tips & Tricks
The various tips and tricks to make Aglio olio pasta are: 1. Always use sufficient water for cooking the Aglio olio pasta to have enough room to move freely. 2. Add the Aglio Y Olio pasta after the water boils because adding them too soon will make them soggy. 3, Keep stirring the Aglio e olio pasta constantly while cooking to prevent the pasta from sticking together. 4. Do not add oil to the Aglio olio penne with cooking water, as this changes the texture and makes it slip off. Oil will also create a greasy Aglio olio pasta recipe and change the flavour and taste of the dish. 5. Salt the cooking water to season the pasta or Aglio olio dish in prior. 6. Save the cooking water in a bowl and reserve to incorporate with the Aglio olio pasta recipe later. 7. Keep track of the timing as long thin pasta Aglio olio will require less time to cook, and small dense ones will need more time. 8. After draining, do not dry it off entirely as the starches will firm up and make the Aglio olio penne stick together. 9. Add the prepared Aglio e olio recipe to oil with the sauteed garlic and not the other way around, and always make the pasta the final step. This prevents the Aglio E olio penne from becoming sticky and gluey.
