I’m afraid I couldn’t resist the title of the post! 🙂 As usual when I’m on my own I want something quick and easy with as few dishes as possible to wash up.
Take some pasta, chilli, garlic and asparagus. Briefly cook the asparagus in the water you’re going to use for the pasta, then cook the pasta of your choice. Meanwhile (in a pan big enough to take the pasta) gently sauté some chopped chilli and garlic in olive oil. Chop the cooked asparagus and, a couple of minutes before the pasta is ready, throw it into the pan with the chilli and garlic and season. Drain the pasta when it’s ready, mix it in with the asparagus, chilli and garlic and serve with freshly grated Parmesan*. Enjoy!
