March 19, 2010 in Uncategorized
This recipe is for bachelor blogger Lefty – he goes where no bachelor dare go before – straight into the kitchen. Lefty darling, as promised this is the pasta recipe that kicks A!!** …… this takes a Salticrack Month-End situation by the scruff of the neck and kicks to touch! If you have some spaghetti – a few chillis, some onion and garlic brother you are IN SERIOUS CHEFFIE BUSINESS ……… my home was often the first stop of my friend Mikey when he worked for the United Nations in Kosovo – he absolutely loves this simplest of simple pasta recipes. It’s the Italian flag on a plate …..
Wack this on the table and you will have housemates, girlfriends, boyfriends or your boss literally eating out of your hands. This is my DEFCON-1 secret weapon Lefty!! Your black Amex doesn’t even need to be drawn from its holster…. this is cheaper than a box of Salticrax bro.
When you have made this pasta and eaten it ………. you will probably want to donate limbs, organs, or your first born child to me as a small gesture of gratitude…. poems and song lyrics will be written about this one brother …..enjoy!
4 chopped red chillis – pips and all
8 chopped spring onions – if you dont have use one medium sized normal onion or red onion
10 chopped cloves of garlic
a good handfull of finely chopped parsley
1 chicken stock cube
1 cup of olive oil
1 packet of spaghetti
This will serve 4 hungry people
Boil a large pot of salted water – bring it to a rolling boil
when it’s boiling its head off – add the packet of spaghetti and stir
Every minute or two – give the spags a stir – this will prevent the pasta
from sticking – don’t neglect pasta by not stirring it ….
In a nice large frying pan or pot – heat the olive oil to nice and hot
add the garlic – chili – spring onions and chicken stock cube and fry
until the garlic is starting to go a pale golden colour
by this time the pasta is ready – don’t drain in a colander like you would normally do
literally lift out forkfull of pasta – which is wet with the water and place it into
the frying pan with the garlic chili and onion int
Stir it well – coating all the pasta with the spicy olive oil
The pasta should be wet and saucy enough if you follow the above but
if you like you can take out a cup full of the pasta water and keep it handy
should anyones pasta be too dry for their liking.
Sprinkle with liberal lashings of parmesan cheese and
serve with loads of hot crusty bread
