Thursday, July 8
So one Friday night hubby and I were passed out in front of the telly and saw 'Fast Ed' do a dish similar to this - simple ingredients, inexpensive and very quick to assemble... looked yummy to boot.
I can't remember exactly what his had in it, it's morphed over time, but we had this last night, and there's never, ever, leftovers. Luckily there's a stash of other leftovers in the freezer for hubby to take for lunch today.
What's your lazy meal?
1 tb olive oil
100g prosciutto, sliced thinly
1/4 tsp black pepper
18 cherry tomatoes, halved
1 clove garlic
1 red chilli, seeds removed and finely diced.
6 cups cooked spaghetti (about 20c piece bunch)
1 cup rocket, roughly chopped
1/3 cup parmesan cheese, shaved
1/2 cup mushrooms, chopped (optional)
Boil a pot of water and then drop in your spaghetti.
In a large frypan or pot, add your olive oil, prosciutto and pepper. Over a medium-high heat, cook the prosciutto until crispy. Remove from pan and set aside.
Next add garlic, chilli and tomatoes (and mushroom if you are using them) and cook until softened.
Add your spaghetti to the pan, add back the proscuitto and sprinkle with half the Parmesan and all the rocket, toss, and turn heat to low. Cover with lid for two or so minutes until the rocket has wilted.
Serve immediately and sprinkle remaining Parmesan on top.
