2011: day 005 (w) aglio e olio | 050111

Bessie wanted to cook something for dinner and after trawling through the cookbooks arrived at this:

‘Aglio e olio’: angel hair pasta with garlic and olive oil from Ed Halmagyi: Dinner in 10 (p.131)

We’d never heard of this dude (tv’s favourite chef according to the cover?), but they were offering his book as a freebie at Broadway if you spent over $30 on groceries, so who could resist?

Really quite delicious indeed (J/F particularly enjoyed it), and extremely inexpensive (!) but we would do the following next time:
– halve the pasta (800g is ridiculous – we have TONS leftover)
– use spaghetti, not angel hair
– double the olive oil
– double the breadcrumbs

Also, the 10 minutes is utterly preposterous, unless you don’t include the 20 minutes to prep all the ingredients in your timing!


Cooked by: Bessie and Carol and Don
