Peel and thinly slice garlic cloves. (see note below)
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
Add garlic to heated oil and simmer on low for about 5 minutes. You want the garlic to get golden brown not to burn.
Sprinkle in the crushed red pepper and heat for 30 seconds. Squeeze in fresh lemon juice and the wine, if using. Heat for another two minutes or so.
Using large tongs, toss cooked pasta in the skillet making sure to coat all the strands with the garlic-kissed oil.
Sprinkle over the fresh parsley and parmesan to serve. Cue the singing angels!
