I cant believe its Monday already. I've had a terrifically terrible weekend, and it seems to have stretched forever, even though its a long weekend, it feels like its gone on for a week.
Tonight I feel like some home made, feel good food for dinner. So a really cheap yet cheerful meal is on the menu.
Spaghetti for the number of people being served. I'm a chuck the whole pack in type of girl, so adjust for your needs. Note, I love this and will eat it for breakfast lunch and dinner with no qualms.
A red chilli (If you cant get fresh, I have used chilli from a jar, not sweet chilli or powdered though)
Parsley, I like continental
Garlic, ( I have a jar of it in the fridge, so I'll use that)
Cook the spaghetti as per instructions on the packet
In a small saucpan melt butter and olive oil. (sorry I dont have amounts, you will have to use what you feel is adequate)
Cook the garlic (1 tsp?) and the red chilli that has been deseeded and chopped very finely, unless you love big bits of chilli in your mouth. Add the chopped parsley before these brown, and pour over the drained spaghetti and stir.
Sprinkle with your favourite cheese that you like on pasta.
This meal wouldn't cost more than $5 if you buy cheap pasta. I can get a kilo for just over a dollar here. That feeds a lot of people. You dont need the pasta saturated with the sauce, just a taste worth, kwim?
