Food and the City: 10 Minute Pasta Yum

10 Minute Pasta


Lets face it. We're all way to busy to think about a gourmet meal for dinner.
Work, boyfriends, husbands, kids, blogs, weird fetishes - they all get put 1st.

I make this pasta a lot, probably way to often, and my guy is probably sick of it but thats ok.
Its really quick, and I mean REALLY quick. Hang something shiny in front of your
guy for 10 minutes and this dish will be ready!

The Goods:
Pasta
Olive Oil
Butter
Salt/Pepper
Parsley
Red Pepper


Full up a nice pretty pot with warm water and put it on a high flame to boil.

Be sure to sprinkle in some salt!


Only fill it up with enough water to cover your pasta. This will cut boiling time a lot! 5-7 minutes.


Cook the pasta to your liking. You can use any pasta you have
in the pantry. It ultimately works with anything.


Strain it out and put it on a pretty plate.


Now I swear I took pictures, but my camera says I didn't. Heat up a skillet with some olive oil
and butter. How much you use will depend on how naughty you are. I wasn't feeling that naughty
so I didn't use much. Just a drizzle of oil and a scoop of butter. OK maybe a big scoop.

Once butter is completely melted, remove from heat and pour it onto your pasta.


Sprinkle on your salt, pepper, and some parsley.


Add some crushed red pepper for a little kick and extra flavor.


Now just stare at the pasta.
