This is a go to dinner for us when we're tired, haven't got anything in, fancy pasta, or want food in a hurry!!
It is so, so simple!
Ingredients ( for 2)
Enough spaghetti for however many people
2 smallish cloves of garlic, or however many you like
1/2 a nippy chilli. ( I used half a sudra, this is hot enough for me)
lots of parsley
Tiny bit of cream
little knob of butter and a tiny bit of olive oil
Lloyd likes some soy sauce in his. Strange but true - this comes about because years ago he used to stay with friends in France who had Vietnamese families staying near by who sold soy sauce - so in turn soy sauce went into everything.
Cook spaghetti as you do
chop garlic, parsley and chilli.
In a small frying pan put the wee knob of butter and the tiny bit of olive oil and add in the garlic and chilli. Cook over a medium heat, stirring and make sure the garlic doesn't burn. Just takes a few minutes.
Once the spaghetti is cooked ( drain it and put it back in the pan) then add in the garlic, chilli buttery mixture. There should have been enough butter and oil to leave a bit of liquid.
Stir it all around so the spaghetti is all coated. Then add in the copious amounts of chopped parsley and stir around again.
Here's where you can add in a small spoon of cream - only if you want, though and/or the soy sauce.
It's, quite frankly, delicious!
