This brings me to the theme at I ♥ Cooking Club for this week. Fast and Fabulous - a good theme and plan for those busy evenings when you need supper on the table pronto. A hot bowl of pasta is always great.
I prepared Garlic,
I don't know why I didn't think of having a "tiny wine" with my meal before. Perfect amount for a light meal. I missed having my husband home to share supper and when he's gone, I never think to open an entire bottle of wine as I usually have one glass (when he's away). These small bottles are great for that purpose.
Anyway, it was very good! I had to reheat it as my son called just as I was hauling everything outside. Could have said I will call you back but, it's always good to talk to him. The devil dogs (Shibas) did not wish to join me for dinner on the patio. Probably still looking for Doug.
My version of Garlic, Chilli and Olive Oil Spaghetti
Cooked the pasta, a breeze since I actually had some on hand that was cooked. Careful use of leftovers means saving money. I just had to shock it in boiling water.
In my small cast iron skillet I heated good quality olive oil then sautéed sliced garlic with sun-dried tomatoes. The chillis would be too tough on my tender stomach so I substituted something red and something I like. A little bit of parsley and a little bit of mozzarella cheese and I was ready for a bowl meal. Even if I had to cook the pasta this would be on the table in under 20 minutes.
Here is the original recipe...... From Donna Hay's Modern Classics 1
