Set water to boil. Once water is close to boiling, set small/medium-sized skillet to medium and pour in olive oil.

Review: It was SO good, friends. Very filling though – I actually couldn’t eat the last 6-7 bites it was so filling. Loved it though, wouldn’t change a thing and it made the house smell fabulous!
