What type of olive oil should I use in Super Easy Olive Oil Pasta?

This recipe calls for a high-end olive oil as it makes a huge difference to the final flavor. Olive oil is the specialty flavor here, and you want a good quality one. It makes all the difference, so be sure to use the good ones. Be sure to use extra virgin olive oil for the best flavor.

brine:

Be sure to cook the pasta in salted water for this recipe. I even list it as an ingredient and in the instructions. You want the pasta to soak up some of the salty water to flavor your pasta. You can always add more salt to taste if desired.

Pasta Options:

Want to use a different shape of pasta? Go forward! This recipe works with angel hair, linguine, penne and more!

Topping options:

We love this dish topped with fresh chopped parsley and freshly grated Parmesan cheese.

Olive oil pasta is best eaten fresh. You can store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Add a small amount of oil to a skillet and reheat over medium-low heat until heated through.
