This is the first in a series of pasta dishes to be made by the tipsy and lazy.
#1 Spaghetti al olio e peperoncino
Okay so you’ve come home from a night out. How about something that isn’t a kebab to soak up the poisonous juices of your overindulgent evening?
Put on a pot of water and go take off your makeup while you wait. Future you will thank you for it.
Throw in a portion or two of spaghetti and let that boil away for a while. Now, try to muster up the strength to prepare the rest of the dish.
This is a bottle of olive oil and some chilli flakes. Try to find some of these. It will all be worth it. Food and bed are all but ten minutes away.
Slice the garlic as small as you can and leave it aside.
When the spaghetti is done, drain it and put the oil, garlic and chili flakes into the pan, cooking until the garlic is golden brown.
Throw the spaghetti back into the pan, mix it up and plonk it down on a plate. Yum yum.
