  • 260 grams of linguine pasta
  • A large pot of boiling water

  3. Two minutes before the pasta is ready, heat the olive oil over medium heat in a pan and fry the spring onion for about 45 seconds, then add the garlic and chili pepper. Fry for another 40 seconds until garlic becomes soft (but not brown)
