Step 1

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and add your spaghetti. Cook until al dente, according to the manufacturers suggested cooking time.

Step 2

In the last 5 minutes of cooking add the green beans. They should be done at the same time as the spaghetti and be fork tender.

Step 3

Meanwhile, in a large enough skillet to hold the pasta, heat olive oil on medium high heat. Add minced garlic and red pepper flakes. Cook for 1 minute. Do not burn the garlic!

Step 4

When the pasta and green beans are ready, drain and add to the skillet. Toss with the garlicky oil to coat. Stir in extra olive oil, as needed, if the pasta is dry. Add black pepper, if desired.

Step 5

Serve immediately with plenty of grated cheese at the table!
