Quick and Easy Pasta

Pasta is kind of staple food in our house. When we can't think of anything to cook, we make pasta.
I basically love different pasta sauce but DH is not that eager on them. His favourite has been pesto pasta. So at times i make half with pesto and half with arrabbiata sauce.

Recently we tried pasta without any sauce at a pasta joint, not that it was for the first time but this one sure did taste a bit different and more to our liking. So i took a detailed look at ingredients list.
First time i tried to make it at home, it still tasted a bit different. Yesterday i gave it a try again, adamant to copy that taste we had, and success!

You can take whole wheat brown pasta and can do it even healthier !

Here is a recipe. Quick and Easy.

Let's collect Ingredients:

2 cup - Pasta, boiled with a little olive oil and salt
1 small bunch Parsley - cut finely
5-6 Small Red Chilies, cut. (Or as many depending on heat that you can bear)
5-6 cloves Garlic - cut. (We like our pasta extra garlicky)
Black Pepper to taste
Salt to taste
2-3 tsp olive oil
1 tsp - garlic oil - optional
3 tsp Pine nuts - optional
Pasta Cheese for garnishing - optional

Let's make Pasta:
