Garlic & Bread Crumbs Spaghetti

We generally discard the slices of breads at both the ends of the loaf; what I usually do is just collect them in freezer and once in a while I coarse grind in mixer to get nice crumbs which I use for variety of recipes. This time I wanted to use them at a single go as that was lying there for some weeks. I found an interesting recipe to use it that i share here.


1. Spaghetti – 250 gm
2. Bread crumbs – 150 gm
3. Olive oil – 50 ml
4. Garlic cloves – 4
5. Italian seasoning – 1/2 tsp
6. Pepper powder – 1/4 tsp
7. Salt as per taste


Step 1: Cook the spaghetti as per the instructions on the pack, toss with few drops of oil and keep it aside.

Step 2: In a non-stick pan, pour olive oil and grate garlic cloves into it. Heat it in low flame and add bread crumbs when aroma emanates. (I had dry roasted bread crumbs prior to frying them in oil so as to avoid prolonged heating of olive oil)

Step 3: Roast the bread crumbs in the oil till they become crisp and then sprinkle seasoning, salt and pepper.

Step 4: Now add the cooked spaghetti and toss well to coat the spaghetti with bread crumbs and spices.

Step 5: Serve hot with more fresh herbs or olive oil if required.
