During the weekend I went to the St. Lawrence Market (I live in the neighbourhood), and stocked with lots of garlic. I also bought assorted mushrooms, and real Italian spaghetti.
Here's my recipe for garlic spaghetti:
1/2 pound spaghetti
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tsp. minced garlic
Boil spaghetti until done (approximately 10 minutes, DO NOT OVERCOOK!). Drain and keep warm (do not rinse).
Sauté the garlic in the olive oil for a minute or two, be careful not to let it burn (I talk from experience here, I've burned my lifetime share of garlic in olive oil).
Add spaghetti and stir well in garlicky-oil. Top with parmesan cheese.
