Oh, I appear to have run out of both money and food. Came home last night and all that was left in my fridge was a couple of manky garlic cloves, a red chilli and half a packet of parmesan, literally everything else was moldy. How long had I been gone?
Anyway, without enough money to buy a packet of Frazzles I decided to make something out of it and the result was rather tasty. I’ve actually had raw garlic and chilli pasta before although when Jamie made it, he included fresh spinach and black olives. As you know, I have no spinach and the only black olives I have are bobbing around a jar of what looks like pond scum. I really should clean out my fridge… Anyway, I thought I’d give it a whirl and what do you know, I managed to make something edible and even blog worthy. Praise the Lord.
Raw Garlic & Chilli Spaghetti
Serves 2 / Takes 15 minutes
150g dry spaghetti
1 table extra Virgin olive oil
1 medium sized, deseeded red chilli
2 medium garlic cloves crushed
Salt and pepper
Grated Parmesan to serve
1. Pop the pasta in boiling salted water and cook for about 8 minutes (see instructions on back of pack). Whilst this is cooking crush two garlic gloves, finely chop the chilli and pop in a bowl with a table spoon of olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
2. Strain the pasta and put back in the saucepan. Cover with the garlic and chilli oil and give it a good stir through. Pop evening into bowls and top generously with grated parmesan and another good crack of salt and pepper. Bish, bash, bosh.
If you’ve had a go at making my spaghetti or any of my other recipes I’d love to hear about it @corrieheale firstname.lastname@example.org
