Poor Gal's Pasta

Sthealthy Hunter garlic straight from garden. 

Sthealthy Hunter garlic straight from garden. 

Hear all about this dish on our HHH Episode #16-Food Friday.  This was literally the very first dish Hillary cooked for Ryan way back in the day. It's cheap to make, quick, and packed full of garlic, which is a favorite in the Sthealthy garden and kitchen. It adds a flair of Mediterranean flavor with pepperocini peppers, extra virgin olive oil, garlic, and Parmesan.

It's good without meat, or with poultry, ground burger, or shrimp, and makes a great side dish or a meal by itself.  

It's spicy so may not be great for kids, but that's ok because you will want to eat it all yourself! 

Makes 2-4 servings, depending on how much you eat. 

Ingredients:

  • 1 package of Tinkyada brand gluten free fettuccini noodles (can also use regular noodles, or zucchini noodles) 
  • 4-6 pepperoncini peppers chopped
  • 1-3 cloves of fresh garlic chopped. (this will depend on how spicy or stinky you want to be.)
  • 1-2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil (for cooking)
  • extra virgin olive oil -EVOO (for putting over cooked noodles)
  • Parmesan cheese 
  • Salt and Italian spices to preference. 

To start: 

  • Put water on and bring to boil.  Add your noodles and cook per instructions. 
  • Chop up the garlic and peppers into small pieces.
  • Heat up olive oil on low, add garlic and peppers and simmer until peppers are soft, and garlic turns a greenish color.  If you overcook the garlic, it will be less spicy. 
  • Strain noodles and add servings to separate bowls.  Pour 1 tbsp of EVOO over the noodles in each bowl. 
  • Separate pepper and garlic mix, pour evenly over each serving of noodle.
  • Top with salt, parmesan cheese, and enjoy!
