1 lb Spaghetti 8 Garlic cloves, chopped 1/4 c Olive oil 1/2 c Parsley, chopped 1/4 c Basil, chopped 1/4 c Chives, chopped 4 tb Sage, chopped Salt & pepper Cook spaghetti until *al dente*. Meanwhile, heat the garlic in the olive oil until it smells fragrant, just a few moments. Toss in the herbs & remove from the heat. Drain the pasta & toss in the pan with the garlicky herbs. Season & serve & do not add cheese as it only interferes with the herby flavours. Be sure to add enough salt & pepper, however. VARIATION: Omit the basil altogether. Replace the sage with any of the following fresh herbs: marjoram; oregano; thyme; rosemary or tarragon. Conversely, reduce the amount of sage & add a little of all these herbs.
