Spaguetti aglio, olio e peperoncino

This name sounds so well and we are just talking about spaghetti with garlic, oil and hot pepper, a classic of the Italian cuisine. Simple, cheap, fast, but really delicious and tasty. In addition, we will use the technique of cooking pasta in our Thermomix, which is very simple and we make sure they are al dente.

With three basic ingredients we will make a delicious dish of spaghetti, which I recommend especially in those cases where we don’t have pleny of time for cooking or when we have unexpected guests. Moreover, they are ingredients that we always have in our houses. So the key is using good quality ingredients, mostly olive oil.

And finally, it is perfect for lactose and egg intolerants  (if the pasta do not uses egg in its preparation) and also for vegans or vegetarians.
