Flavor for Fridays, Spaghetti Aglio Olio with prawns (Recipe)

Spaghetti Aglio Olio is a classic Italian dish. As the name says, it’s Spaghetti tossed with Garlic (Aglio)  and Olive oil (Olio).

It all started when one day we were having Rice with Paruppu, Rasam and Chinna Vengaya Thokku. I was licking my fingers that the thokku was so spicy tangy yumm..
