  • Meanwhile, in a large skillet set over medium heat, add 1/4 cup of the olive oil. When the oil begins to shimmer, add three-quarters of the garlic and ½ teaspoon salt. When garlic starts to smell fragrant, after about 1 minute, add a small splash of the pasta cooking water.

  • When the spaghetti is done, drain and add to the skillet. Mix well, then add the remaining 2 tablespoons oil and remaining garlic. Mix again and serve.
