Easy Pasta with no sauce. Maybe I will make one with a sauce later this week, but here it goes.
First, the ingredients. They are very similar to the last recipe, as that is what I have right now.
Pecorino Romano cheese (you can use parmesan if you want. I prefer pecorino.)
Also, some fresh basil for garnish is nice.
Start out by turning on a pot of water for the pasta. Remember to add some olive oil and salt. That makes the pasta turn out better.
Chop your onions in a way that will generally go well with the shape of your pasta, and dice your garlic. Also chop up some salami.
Next get out a frying pan and start heating up some olive oil. Toss in the dry spices and cook them in the oil for a bit. This releases a lot more flavor from them.
I especially like the hot pepper oil that results from this.
Anyway, cook your pasta and mix it with your newly made fixings. It will need a bit of extra oil. I like to put this in the pan after I have removed the stuff I cooked, so that it can pick up the flavor when I immediately transfer it too the pasta.
