Pasta with Rocket, Lemon, Chili and Parmesan
Pasta with Rocket, Lemon, Chili and Parmesan


4 handfuls of rocket
200g piece of parmesan
1 lemon
2 cloves garlic
150ml chili oil
400g spagetti or linguine
Freshly ground black pepper
Wash and dry rocket and coarsely shred it. Coarsely grate the parmesan cheese. Mince the garlic and and squeeze and strain the lemon. Combine the oil, lemon juice and garlic in a bowl big enough to toss the spagetti.
Cook the pasta in salted water according to the instructions on the box until al dente. Lift pasta into the prepared bowl, straining the pasta but drizzle some of the cooking water into the oil. Add the shredded rocket and parmesan to the pasta, season and toss together.
Enjoy with a glass or two of white wine.
Bon apetite
This is a Sean Moran recipe out of his Let it Simmer cookbook.
