Pasta aglio e olio


Pasta aglio e olio doesn’t need any new introduction. I think its the easiest pasta recipe! I make it quite often, whenever, I am too tired to think of anything elaborate or am just plain tired. It is fulfilling and a pretty beautiful dish.

Here is how I make it; it serves two.



  • Boiled spaghetti; I add dried basil and little salt in the boiling water;
  • Split cherry tomatoes, around half cup;
  • 1/3 cup fresh green peas;
  • 1 medium onion sliced;
  • 4 cloves of garlic finely sliced;
  • Olive oil (extra virgin);
  • Salt, pepper, garlic and herbs dried mix, parmesan and chilli flakes.



  • In a pan, heat olive oil;
  • Add onion and garlic, and sauté till garlic is cooked. Do not burn the garlic;
  • Now add peas and tomatoes, and cook on medium flame for 4-5 minutes;
  • Add salt, pepper, chilli flakes and herbs, and mix;
  • Now switch off the flame and add the drained pasta, and mix;
  • Top it up with pepper and parmesan, and serve!


Hope you like it. Stay tuned for many more quick recipes.
