PASTA AGLIO e OLIO (Oil and Garlic)

Difficulty: Easy
Vegan (without the parmesan)

This would have to be the quickest sauce ever! You can literally walk in the door and have dinner on the table in 20 minutes. To speed things up simply fill your kettle with hot water and boil. Once boiled, transfer to your pasta cooking pot. You may need to do this a couple of times but it is still quicker than waiting for it to boil on the stove.


  • 3 garlic cloves (crushed for traditional method)
  • 1 red chilli (optional) remove the seeds to reduce heat or leave them in…your choice
  • 50g olive oil
  • 3 sprigs parsley, leaves only (finely chopped for traditional method)
  • 500g packet of spaghetti
  • 40g parmesan cheese (3cm cubes for thermal cooker, grated for traditional method)
