Spaghetti Aglio, Olio e Peperoncino aka Spaghetti with Garlic and Chilli Pepper Oil!!

  Spaghetti Aglio, Olio e Peperoncino (Spaghetti with Garlic and Chilli Pepper Oil), a humble dish from Naples, Italy. Almost every pasta themselves have been called a dish of the poor, as for this dish in this post is the dish of the poorest of the poor.
  It is very easy to make, especially for someone who don't cook, however, it is very delicious and tasted fresh. I like this dish even though it's called a dish of the poor, or even of the rich, as long as it is delicious :)
