|400g||Cook Italia Spaghetti|
|4 tablespoons||Extra Virgin Olive Oil|
|2||Red Chillies, deseeded and coarsely chopped|
|4 Cloves||Garlic, coarsely chopped|
|A handful||Fresh Basil leaves, roughly chopped|
|A pinch||Salt and Black Pepper|
|A sprinkling||Cook Italia Grated Italian Cheese*|
Cook the Spaghetti in a large pan of boiling water, with a pinch of salt, for 8 to 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, warm the Olive Oil in a pan on a medium heat. Add the garlic and chilli and fry for a couple of minutes, stirring occasionally, until softened but not burnt.
Check the Pasta and when it is how you like it – ‘al dente’ or a little softer – drain it and tip the hot, drained Pasta into the pan with the chilli and garlic.
Mix until the Pasta is glossily coated in the Olive Oil.
Sprinkle the chopped basil and the Grated Italian Cheese* (if using) over the top and serve immediately with a twist of black pepper for a final flourish.
