I like Aglio Olio spaghetti but my version is somewhat quite substandard :)

One fine Saturday morning, I had the craving for Aglio Olio. I made a trip to the supermarket and got myself Dory Fish, chicken sausages and some mushrooms. To me, cooking spaghetti is relatively easy (in my own standards of course).

Boil the spaghetti first, with a pinch of salt in the pot. Boil it for more than 5min to get the real al dente texture, from my experience. Leave it a little longer to get it a bit softer, but not too overcooked. Once boiled and cooked, drain it out with a sieve and leave aside with olive oil so they do not clump together.

Then I simply season the fish with salt and some herbs and seasoning before frying. Then, I fried the sausages till thoroughly cooked/brown with olive oil.

Set aside these and start frying the garlic and mushrooms. Add in the sausages and pasta and toss it with olive oil. Turn off the fire and toss in the dory fish with some chilli flakes and shredded parsley.

Not well taken but the taste was surprisingly good!
