hungry but little time to cook

This is one of the easiest recpies i have got, so easy infact it takes minutes to make. Coming home late and hungry as many people do with the busy lives we lead this one is perfect.
All you need is some wholegrain pasta, chilli (dried or fresh), sea salt, olive oil, couple cloves of garlic and parmesan cheese. Get the pasta boiling in a pot, while this is going on chop the garlic as finely as you can with the chilli. Dont be afraid to use at least two/three cloves of garlic, and the amount of chilli is up to you. When the pasta is cooked, drain it in a colinder and put the empty pot back on the heat minus the water. Add a good gulp of olive oil and throw in the chilli and garlic, do not leave this burn, watch it carefully for a minute or two no more. Now put the pasta into the pot and mix well, add sea salt and a little cracked black pepper. Serve at once and grate lots of parmesan cheese on top.
A tasty bit of food with minimum amount of fuss and one pot and a plate to wash up, cant get easier than that.

Q. tip: spend a little extra on the dried pasta and olive oil, it is worth it and makes all the difference

  1. Sounds good, can't wait to try it. An even lazier pasta dish is just pasta, cashel blue, butter and pepper - I read this from the Leon cookbook and must say its gorgeous.
