Peasant pasta recipe

I worked with an Italian lady who said that this kind of pasta is known as 'peasant food'. Though very simple, I find that this is a lovely way to enjoy pasta (and very good to make when food stocks are running low!).

Serves 2

2-3 tbsp olive oil
1 clove garlic
Large handful of continental parsley, chopped
Cooked spaghetti for 2

1. Heat the olive oil in a small saucepan. Crush the garlic with the flat side of a knife and fry in oil until golden, taking care not to burn it. Remove from heat and discard garlic.

2. Drain the spaghetti and return to the pot. Pour over warm olive oil in small batches, mixing between, until pasta is nicely coated but not dripping with oil.

3. Throw in the parsley and mix until combined.

Happy eating! :)
