Pasta somewhat Aglio Olio

No pics available yet, but I did make this, was suprised with the flavour and yes, it' fast and easy to make.
Have some parmesan  on hand so if you feel that your pasta is way too spicy for you, add some grated cheese on top to make life a bit better:)

I wasn't saying, but this time we where with Julia walking around town thinking already about late lunch on a saturday, and we decided to give it a go at home.
We are the one you talk to when you diet or want to diet. "Oh yeah, sure, I hate chocolate, I won't eat pasta because I'll gain 20000000kg, but what I really want right now is spaghetti Aglio Olio."
But I want chili peppers just because I like them and I had everything at home. Except for spaghetti. So we had taggliatele.
I know. Totaly badass.

What you do? What do we need? Where do we go? Where do you go?

Type of dish: main, pasta
Difficulty: easy
Cost: cheap
Serves: 2
Time: 15 min
Prep time: 5 min
Cooking time: 10min

You shall need:
cutting board, sharp knife, large frying pan, medium saucepan with lid, spatula, grater, 2 plates

  • pasta for 2, of your choice, but stringy types are best for this sauce
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • half a chilli pepper, minced
  • coarse sea salt
  • Extra virgin olive oil
  • optional: a few halved cherry or grape tomatoes.
  • parmesan to grate
 This is such an awesome easy recipe.
Heat water with lid on in the saucepan. When it boils, add a pinch of salt and add the pasta. Cook according to package time.
When you boil the pasta, heat on medium high heat the pan, when still warming up, add the garlic, chili, a large drizzle of olive oil and a pinch of salt. When the garlic and chilli starts smelling really intense, open a window, add the tomatoes if you have them, and now your pasta should be already cooked and drained. Add it to the pan and swish around so every strand is coated in oil. Turn the heat off and serve on plates. Grate some cheese on top for some mildness and get on with it! Serve!
