Spaghetti con aglio, olio e peperoncino eccetera (Spaghetti with garlic, olive oil and chilli etc).
This recipe is a personal favourite of mine and it’s super easy. It’s a bit of a take on a recipe by Maurizio Esposito, found in Maeve O’Meara’s Food Safari cookbook. Instead of just the garlic, olive oil and chilli (which is delicious on its own) I bulk it up with some mushrooms, capsicum and bacon.
This dish is great when you’re in a rush, low on ingredients or just feel like a light easy meal. I prefer it in summer with a glass of red and a generous slice of pana di casa or any thick crusted loaf.
Oh, and make sure you cook enough for seconds!
(not really) sorry about the self promotion but my food blog is back up and running. My cookbooks are all bookmarked, kitchen is a mess and my drafts folder is filling up with new posts and future ideas. I’d love some feedback, or some new ideas for posts whether they be certain dishes, personal recommendations or mini-reviews!
I really do plan to stay on top of it all now because for the moment I’ve finished with uni and haven’t started working full time, so I have no excuse except for my own laziness. Plus, talking at food happens to be one of my specialties.
