Spicy Spaghetti Aglio e Olio with Trader Joe's Chili Onion Crunch
This quick and simple Italian dish is a perfect busy day meal. All you'll need is some spaghetti pasta, olive oil, and a jar of Chili Onion Crunch from Trader Joe's and you've got a delicous pasta meal in minutes.
Fill a large pot with 4 quarts of water and 1 tablespoon of salt. Bring to a boil over high heat.
While the water is coming to a boil, place the uncooked spaghetti in a rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle the pasta with a teaspoon of olive oil, and toss until coated.
In a small saucepan, add the olive oil, Chili Onion Crunch, and kosher salt. Cook over medium heat until the garlic and onion in the Chili Onion Crunch begin to sizzle. Reduce heat to low and allow to continue cooking while boiling the pasta.
Once the stockpot has come to a rolling boil, bunch the pasta together and snap in half. Slowly add to the boiling water and cook, stirring immediately after adding to the water and periodically during cooking so that the pasta doesn't stick together. Cook for 10 to 11 minutes or until al dente. Drain using a colander.
Immediately return the pasta to the pot and add the infused olive oil mixture. Toss until the pasta is fully coated with the olive oil mixture.
