Introduction

Spaghetti with Garlic and Oil is an Italian staple, but is very high in fat. Our family recipe cuts the fat significantly, substituting chicken bouillon for the additional oil after the garlic and spices have been sauteed in 2T of olive oil. We enjoy this as a side dish to a piece of grilled fish or chicken and a garden salad.

    8 ounces dry spaghetti
    3 cloves garlic, crushed
