160 g gluten free/wheat free spaghetti
1 clove garlic, crushed
1/2 dried chili peppers, minced 0.2 g
2 tbsp olive oil 30 mL
1 pinch salt [optional] 0.2 g
2 tbsp Parmesan cheese, grated [optional] 6 g

Before you start

Keep the serving dishes in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve. Put a colander in the sink to drain the cooked pasta so that it will be ready when needed.


  1. To save time, the sauce preparation and the pasta cooking can be done at the same time. Start cooking the pasta.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a frying pan over medium-low heat. Sauté the garlic 2-3 min. Pay attention not to let it burn. Add the chili pepper. Add more for extra spiciness.
  3. Pour the drained spaghetti into the pan and add salt to taste. Sprinkle with grated Parmesan (optional) then serve in the warmed dishes.
