   chopped garlic. Place the octopus on top of this mixture and season
   with salt and pepper. Cover the pot very tightly and simmer for about
   45 minutes. Cook the spaghetti in plenty of boiling salted water
   until it is 'al dente' (firm to the bite).  Drain and turn onto a
   warm serving dish.  Mix the octopus sauce into the spaghetti.  Serve
   piping hot.
