  1. Heat the olive oil in a small pan over medium heat and sauté the garlic and the chili pepper until the garlic is just beginning to brown.
  2. Put a big serving dish in the oven to warm. Turn off the heat to the garlic and pepper mixture and add a little salt.
  3. Cook the pasta in plenty of well-salted, boiling water. Stir occasionally and cook until the pasta is al dente (just tender).
  4. Drain the pasta, put in the warmed serving dish, and add the sauce.
  5. Sprinkle the parsley on top, toss, and serve immediately.
