Spaghetti With Extra Virgin Olive Oil

  • Twelve ounce premade spaghetti noodles
  • Twelve black olives
  • Three cloves of garlic
  • Thirty ounce capers, rinsed
  • One teaspoon sea salt
  • One tablespoon sea salt

  • One drop of olive oil
  • One dried red chili pepper
  • Four tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Five basil leaves washed and torn just before serving
  • Cracked pepper
  • One loaf of fresh crusty Italian bread


Fill a large pot with water, drizzle the drop of olive oil in it and turn to high to boil. During the meantime, chop the olives and peel the garlic. Crumble the chili pepper. Wash the capers and then dice the garlic. Slice the tomatoes into small chunks. Wash and cut the basil and grind the pepper. In a large saucepan, pour the four tablespoons olive oil in and heat. Before it begins smoking, put the tomatoes, capers, chili pepper, and garlic. Stir well for less than two minutes.
