- ¼ lb bucatini
- 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
- ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- ½ cup water
- 1 teaspoon Momofuku Savory Seasoned Salt*

*Savory spice can be replaced with Momofuku Tingly Seasoned Salt. Reduce to 1½ teaspoons of Savory Seasoned Salt.
Cook pasta according to package directions for 1 minute less than instructed. It should taste more al dente than you typically enjoy.
Add olive oil to a sauté pan over medium heat with sliced garlic and red pepper flakes. Cook on low heat until the garlic turns light golden.
Set aside ½ cup of the pasta water. Transfer the cooked pasta into the sauté pan, and add the ½ cup of water. Add in Momofuku Tingly Seasoned Salt and cook the pasta on low while tossing it in the infused olive oil. Cook to your desired doneness—approximately 1 to 2 minutes.
Finish with a handful of chopped parsley and more Tingly Seasoned Salt, to taste.
Momofuku Seasoned Salt is a starter pack of flavor to take your cooking to the next level, packed with the same umami-rich ingredients we use in our Momofuku restaurant kitchens.
