Cook the pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water until barely tender but firm to the bite. Drain and reserve 1/8 cup of the cooking water. While the pasta is cooking, begin the sauce. In a large saucepan over medium heat, place the extra virgin and warm for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the garlic and red pepper flakes. Lower the heat and immediately add the drained hot pasta and the reserved cooking water to the oil. Toss and stir so that the oil and water emulsify. Serve immediately.
