You can never go wrong with pasta.
And the amazing thing is that when it comes to pasta, simple is the best.
I mean, a few good ingredients and you are there.
I really hate how they serve pasta here in NYC.
Its always with a tom of tomato sauce, its just to heavy.
Pasta should have few but amazing ingredients, like my spring onion and chili pasta.
How do you like your pasta?
Spring onion and chili pasta
Such an easy dish to make.
So much flavor.
Try making your own breadcrumbs, it will taste so much better.
3 tablespoons olive oil + extra for serving
4 spring onions, chopped
2 teaspoons red pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons dry breadcrumbs, tossed golden in a non stick pan.
2 tablespoons parmesan, freshly grated
1 pound dry linguine
Heat oil in a pan and add spring onions.
Saute until tender, about 3 minutes.
Add pepper flakes and salt.
Cook pasta al dente in salted water.
Drain pasta and add to pan.
Divide pasta between 4 plates.
Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with breadcrumbs and parmesan.
