2 cloves of garlic, peeled and finely grated
2 or 3 handfuls of freshly grated Parmesan cheese
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil and cook the pasta. Meanwhile fry the grated garlic in the butter without colouring it for a couple of minutes and pour into a big bowl. When the pasta is cooked, drain it, but reserve at least 5 to 6 tablespoons of the pasta water.
Add the pasta to the bowl with the garlic oil, add the Parmesan cheese and the pasta water and toss well.
