Spaghetti Alio, Olio e Peperoncino
Ingredients (serves 4)
- 4 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
- 3 fresh red chillies, deseeded and chopped
- 500 g spaghetti
- olive oil
- 1 large fresh lemon
- Parmesan cheese
Peel and finely chop the garlic, deseed and finely chop the chillies and rinse and finely slice 4 – 6 heads of the spring onions.
Meanwhile, heat some olive oil in a frying pan. Add the garlic and chillies and fry a little while until the garlic is starting to colour.
Add the spring onions and cook, stirring from time to time, for another 3 to 4 minutes until the onions have softened. Finely grate over some lemon peel using a grater. Season with salt and pepper to your taste.
Drain the pasta properly in a colander and add it to the pan with a splash of the water it was cooked in.
Squeeze over the lemon juice and serve topped with a drizzle of oil and finely grated Parmesan.
