Yep. I went there. Say it with me now… FRIED. Apparently in German, fried means peace, and trust me, this pasta will bring you peace, even if for only 5 minutes. You know what’s great about fried pasta? Using up the leftover pasta in your fridge from the night (or two) before. It’s not the same if you try to make a fresh pot of pasta and tomato sauce, and then fry it. It just doesn’t work that way. Don’t even try, because you will likely ruin your meal. Just do yourself a favour, and save a bit for the next day. Works best with tomato sauce.
Steps to peace:
1. Drizzle olive oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat.
2. Put your pasta in the frying pan. Spaghetti. Rigatoni. Rotini. Linguine. Whatever.
3. FRY THAT ISH. Ohhh fry it ‘til you get little crunchy bits. Love the crunchy bits. Add parmesan. Add chili flakes. Fry, fry, fry!
4. Mangia! (Translation: Eat!)
