6 tbsp olive oil
2 garlic cloves, peeled and finely chopped
1 small red chilli, finely chopped
1 Place plenty of water in a saucepan, add salt, bring to the boil and throw in the pasta. Stir, then cook for about 5-6 minutes until nearly done.
2 Start the sauce by heating the olive oil gently in a deep frying pan. Add garlic and chilli and fry for a few seconds, or until garlic starts to change colour. Take care not to burn the garlic.
3 The pasta will be ready and al dente in those few minutes.
4 Drain it well and put in the frying pan with the sauce, adding a little salt and perhaps 1-2 tbsp of the pasta cooking water.
5 Stir a couple of times and serve.
