Cook the spaghetti in a large pot of boiling, salted water until al dente.
While the pasta cooks, heat the oil in a large skillet. Add the sliced garlic and cook until just golden. Add a pinch of crushed red pepper and salt. Add 1/3 cup of the pasta cooking water and swirl to combine. Toss the hot pasta into the pan and toss quickly to combine. Add more pasta water as needed to make a sauce. Serve piping hot.
Editor's Note: Resist the urge to add cheese. The simplicity of this dish is key.
