Cook pasta in generously salted boiling water according to package directions. While pasta cooks, put last three ingredients in a large bowl to meld. You may vary the amount of red pepper flakes used to the amount of heat you like. During the last couple minutes the pasta cooks, add a couple of tablespoons of the pasta water to the oil mixture and stir. Once pasta is done, toss it in the oil mixture and remove the garlic cloves. Top with freshly grated Parmesan cheese and serve.

When I was an exchange student in Italy, I ate this a few times per week with my second host family. If the garlic flavor is too intense, you can lightly saute the oil mixture before coating the pasta.
