I thought I’d share with you all one of the super quick and easy meals that I sometimes make for Josh and I for lunch or dinner. This Chilli and Garlic Penne Pasta is tasty, spicy and really, really easy to throw together! It’s literally 6 ingredients (not including olive oil and salt and pepper!)
If you love garlic and chilli, you’ll seriously love this pasta! We’ve used 1/4 teaspoon of chilli flakes (one of my favourite ingredients!) but you could add more or less as you desire! It does have quite a bite to it with a quarter teaspoon, so if you’re brave (or crazy!) add more! Two cloves of garlic gives it a great garlicky flavour, and together with the fresh coriander, gives a simple but great flavour!
We used penne pasta because we find it works really well with this dish, but you could use other types of pasta – fettuccine or linguine also work really well with this recipe!
If you love pasta please share this recipe with your friends!
