The Aglio Olio with a Little Bit of Crunch
The old way: Spaghetti aglio, olio e peperoncino is in any Italian cook's repertoire, since its ingredients—garlic, olive oil, hot dried chilies and pasta—are pantry staples.
The new way: A Parmesan brodo (essentially a stock made from cheese rinds and water) gives the dish a sturdier backbone. Sprinkling lightly browned bread crumbs on top of the plated pasta adds warm, toasty crunch.
