1/2 cup of extra virgin olive oil
the leaves of 2 stalks of oregano
place the oil, garlic and oregano into a small pan and gently heat through for about 6 to 8 minutes or until the garlic turns golden – watch it closely as you don’t want it to burn. Set aside until needed.
boil your pasta until ready – it should have a slight bite to it, then drain well but set aside a cup of the pasta water
gently re-heat the oil if you need to and pour it into the the pan with the pasta, the cup of pasta water and at least 2 good handfuls of parmesan and stir it all together before sprinkling with oregano flowers and serving
