Notes

Add a generous amount of salt into water to cook the spaghetti as no salt or other flavouring will be added. Salted water flavours the pasta.

To keep pasta from sticking, stir during the first minute or two of cooking

Do not over cook the garlic in the olive oil. Otherwise the garlic will be bitter.
