  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 2


8 ounces of spaghetti

1/3 cup of freshly grated parmesan cheese

8 cloves of minced garlic cloves (approximately 3 tbsp)

3 tbsp of butter

2 tbsp vegeterian oyster sauce

1 tsp of red chili flakes (optional, highly recommend)

Salt and pepper


Extra parmesan cheese on top

Sesame seeds

Chives or green onions



  • Cook the pasta al dente. For best results, cook the pasta noodles 1 minute before it is done to ensure chewy noodles. You will be cooking it a little bit more in the sauce, so account for the cooking process.
  • If using pasta noodles, such as spaghetti noodles, heavily salt the large pot of water. It should taste like the sea.
  • As much as possible, avoid using garlic powder at all costs and use fresh garlic for this recipe since the authentic garlic flavor is what we're aiming for with the garlic sauce.
  • Garnish the noodles with different kinds of toppings such as Parmesan cheese, toasted sesame seeds, or a drizzle of sesame oil, and chopped green onions and chives. These add texture, flavor, and visual appeal to the dish.
