Add in minced garlic (about 4 teaspoons), salt, and red pepper flakes. Stir for about 1 minute. Remove from pot and set aside.
Meanwhile, add water to the pot and bring to a boil. Add pasta and cook until al dente (about 1 minutes less than suggested on package). Reserve 1/2 cup pasta water. Drain and return to the pot.
