Spaghetti Aromatici

This is a nice light pasta that has a very nice mixture of herbs.  Pastas like Spaghetti Aromatici are usually served as the third or fifth course of an Italian seven course formal dinner.
     Recipe:  Boil spaghetti pasta till al dente.  While the pasta is cooking, make the aromatici sauce.
     Saute sliced garlic in virgin olive oil over medium heat till it turns to a golden color.  (Use enough olive oil to coat the noodles.  Olive oil is the sauce.)  Add sea salt and cracked black pepper.  Add a chopped fresh herb mix of oregano, sage, parsley, basil, thyme, rosemary, marjoram and a larger proportion of chopped mint.  Toss herb oil sauce with the cooked pasta.  Garnish with a mint sprig.
     The aroma and taste of this pasta is so fragrant!  Mint is really the major portion of the herb mix.  This is an authentic regional Italian pasta that does not get the attention it deserves.  Simply wonderful!  Ciao Baby!  ... Shawna
