1 lb Spaghetti
1 Green or Red Chilli (chopped)
4 Garlic cloves (crush if you have a garlic crusher, if not chop)
2oz Grated Parmesan Cheese (or mature Cheddar)
1 teaspoon basil
6 Tablespoons Olive Oil
4 oz Butter
Salt & Pepper to taste
Heat butter and oil in saucepan, saute garlic until soft (do not brown or burn), add chopped Chilli, basil, and stir quickly. Remove from heat, add spaghetti and stir or toss.
Put in large serving dish or bowl, top with grated cheese. Serve.
A nice side salad of tomatoes would go very well with this. Simply slice the tomatoes in a bowl, drizzle olive oil over them and sprinkle with fresh basil leaves, salt and black pepper. Enjoy a taste of Italy with a glass of red or white Italian wine.
