During our Europe trip, I was able to visit both Spain and Italy. In Spain, I had the chance to try many different sausages; and in Italy, of course, I ate a lot of pasta. Inspired by these visits, I thought of creating a dish that would reflect both Spanish and Italian cuisines. The end result is a dish I call Longaniza and Mushroom Spaghetti Aglio e Olio.

Longaniza is a popular Spanish sausage commonly associated with chorizo. Spaghetti aglio e olio is a famous traditional Italian pasta dish that is made with spaghetti, garlic, olive oil, and chili flakes. I combined all of these ingredients to create one outstanding pasta dish.

For this recipe, I used my homemade chili garlic oil as well as homemade crispy fried garlic bits. If it isn't possible to make your own, simply buy these ingredients at your favorite market. Follow my easy steps if you wish to try this simply delicious Spanish-Italian dish.

        Hi Eric,

        Yes. Whatever vegetable you want will do. I would recommend spinach if you like it. It will surely taste really good too.
