Using What You've Got Pasta with Oil and Garlic

Pasta with oil and garlic

Make this fantastically simple recipe as-is or mix it up! This pasta can be altered to suit whatever you have on hand.  Toss in some veggies, leftover cooked meats or some beans and voila! A complete meal in minutes. The recipe calls for linguine, but I love to make this simple dish with tricolored farfalle, pictured above.

This recipe was provided by Ramona Hamblin. Check out more of her recipes in her cookbook: just cook here’s how.


  1. Cook pasta according to package directions.
  2. Gently heat oil in a large pan, sauté garlic and crushed pepper if using for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat, stir in parsley (if using), salt and pepper.
  4. Serve with grated cheese and salad.
