Pasta on this recipe is cooking really fast and easy. I’d even say instantly.

All you need to do is to boil pasta, slice the garlic and cheese and fry them. It’s so easy and clear that there’s even no need for step by step instructions.

But the main feature of this pasta, except for simplicity is affordable ingredients. Personally I always have at home garlic, spaghetti, olive oil, salt, and pepper.

In case you don’t have any chili pepper at home, but it’s already dinner time, and there’s no shop nearby, replace with 0,5-1 tsp of chili flakes or with the same amount of ground one. But preferably use the chili pepper.
