When it's the middle of the workweek in winter, all you want is a yummy, comforting, and homemade meal for dinner. And preferably one that doesn't require a trip to the grocery store and only takes 10 minutes to make. If you're in that mood, nothing is better than pasta aglio e olio, otherwise known as spaghetti with garlic and olive oil. Sometimes the best thing is the simplest thing, which is why you'll love these easy aglio e olio pasta recipes, ranging from traditional to inventive and from healthy to indulgent. Make them with a garden salad, a side of veggies, and protein, or enjoy it as a stand-alone meal. Click through to take your pick, or shall we say, twirl.
