Simple Spicy Pasta

This Simple Spicy Pasta is where it’s at right now. We could eat it every night for dinner I reckon! Isn’t pasta just the best? We love it soooo much! It’s such a quick easy dish and so filling.

If you don’t like spice – you could omit the chilli flakes! (we won’t mind!). We used onion but not garlic in this recipe. We find if we eat too much garlic we get weird dreams (anyone else experience this!?) – so we’ve reduced it in our diets a bit. Feel free to add the garlic when you cook the onion in this recipe!  We love the antipasto flavours through this – the olives, sun dried tomatoes and capers – you could even add some artichokes too. Do you know, I just found out that capers pickled flower buds that are dried , that are then put in a brine or salt. It’s such a cool world we live in, with such an abundance of amazing food!

This really is such a simple dish – I whipped it up the other day in no time! We garnished ours with some fresh parsley out of the garden and some nutritional yeast and black pepper. Feel free to garnish yours with whatever you like!

If you love pasta too, you’d like our Fiery Pesto recipe that is great with pasta! And why not finish up with an Apple and Blackberry Crumble?
