Hello this is Javier and today I’ll be
attempting my first pasta dish as a beginner
Aglio e olio. I am not so sure if i pronounced it correctly, but just in case, I’ve left the
words here. Today I’ll be trying out from some online recipes that I stumbled across.
So let’s get started first. First, salt the water generously. Now that the water is
boiling I will proceed to add the pasta in and cook according to the instructions given
on the package I’ll be chopping them really thinly. okay not the prettiest garlic you can see
by yay I am glad that it’s still garlic! Back to the pasta, they are almost done!
I shall start preparing my strainer. I am done! Now I’m going to dump the water into my sink. Now I will fry the olive oil and the garlic together at medium heat. And done! I will now transfer the pasta over. Add in the cheese. Now I am going to just toss them together. Now I will proceed to try it out. I already got a feeling that it’s not so good. But hey, it’s still food so I will try it! Still pretty clumpy. Okay so I am done eating. Afterthoughts, the flavour-wise is pretty okay but its definitely not something I will pay for to eat outside. I actually faced quite a few problems, the pasta has already cooled and clumped. In the future, future I should probably reserve some
hot pasta water to let the pasta continue soaking in because I only have one functional stove and I cannot do the cooking of the pasta and frying the garlic simultaneously. Number two is that I’ll probably have added more cheese
I should have grated the cheese instead of shredding it but nonetheless is still
quite okay it’s just that presentation wise you probably can’t see the cheese
because the grated cheese looks a lot like pasta. The third problem is more of a personal preference, I
find it slightly too oily and I’m not so sure if it’s just me. I mean look at the
leftovers of the plate, you can see its very yellowish. It’s all oil. But I know that this spaghetti is supposed to be slightly oily I’m just
not so sure if I have added too much oil. Yup so there it is! See you around bye
Oh! Feel free to leave any feedback or comment for me so that I can continue
learning. Thank you so much!
