Simple Garlic Cheesy Pasta

Serves 1
15 mins
Basic ingredients and comforting flavours. You'll probably have all these ingredients in the cupboard, so it's perfect to make quickly before a night out or after a busy day at uni.


100g spaghetti or pasta

Cooking oil

1 clove garlic

Handful grated cheese

Salt and pepper

Red pepper flakes (optional)

Let's Cook:

Get started by cooking and draining the pasta. Keep back a bit of the cooking water to add to the sauce later.

In the pan, add a drizzle of oil and put it on a medium heat. Throw in the chopped garlic clove (and red pepper flakes if you have them). After about 1 minute, throw in the spaghetti and cheese, before mixing everything up. Add a little bit of that pasta water from earlier, and season with salt and pepper. That's it! Creamy, comforting and quick pasta, ready to eat!

We love adding extras to this recipe like: mushrooms, peas, bacon etc...
