It is a traditional Italian dish that originated somewhere in the South of Italy likely in the area of Naples. The literal translation of the Italian term Aglio E Olio is ‘garlic and oil.’ And when you add the word spaghetti to the name, it simply means that it is a dish made of spaghetti majorly with garlic and oil.

Another prime ingredient that is a part of the most authentic Aglio E Olio preparation is the dried red chilies or the red chili flakes as it is referred to in India. In this aspect, the dish also has another name to it, which is ‘olio e pepperoncino.’
