One Pot Spaghetti Aglio e Olio

Our one-pot rendition of the classic Spaghetti Aglio e Olio recipe turned out so good that we immediately started working on this blog post.

If you’re unfamiliar with Spaghetti Aglio e Olio, it’s an Italian dish primarily consisting of spaghetti, garlic, olive oil, and parsley.

Unlike the original dish, we’ll be cooking (raw) spaghetti together with sauteed garlic-chili flakes mixture.

Let’s go!

  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons chopped garlic
  • 1 teaspoon chili flakes
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups water
  • Spaghetti pasta for 1 serving (adjust for multiple servings)
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • Handful of cilantro / parsley (freshly chopped)


  • Set a large, thick-bottomed pan over low-medium heat.
  • Add extra virgin olive oil + garlic + chili flakes.
  • Saute for 5-6 minutes, or until the garlic is golden.
  • Add salt + water + spaghetti. Give it a quick mix.
  • Cover the pan, turn up the heat to medium, and bring it to a boil.
  • Once it comes to a boil, remove the cover and stir continuously for 4-5 minutes, or until the pasta is cooked, and around half of the liquid is absorbed / evaporated.
  • Next, add lemon juice + pepper + freshly chopped cilantro.
  • Continue stirring for 2-3 minutes, or until much of the liquid is evaporated and emulsified. You're looking for a thick, saucy mixture at this point.
  • Turn off the heat and serve hot.
