It sounds fancier than it is.
Last night we were both supposed to not be home. But we both ended up at home. For dinner.
And I really had no plan for feeding both of us.
So I opened a cabinet.
And then another cabinet.
And then I rummaged around the fridge.
And I came up with angel hair pasta, olive oil, garlic, a lemon and some basil leaves.
If you have pasta and some olive oil, you can always make a meal.
So here we go, pasta sauce on the fly.
Pour some olive oil into a pan and add two cloves of garlic chopped. Remember, the oil is going to be the sauce, so don’t skimp out here.
When the garlic starts to brown a bit, add in the juice of one lemon and tear a few basil leaves into the sauce. Give a few grinds to the pepper mill. If you want to add a touch of richness, add in a tablespoon of butter.
Toss some angel hair pasta in the sauce and sprinkle with parmesan cheese.
A few key ingredients and you won’t panic when you need to whip up a last minute dish.
