Ingredients
  • 1 Packet Of Pasta
  • 1 Chorizo (Or Any Other Meat Really)
  • Parsley
  • Rosemary
  • Garlic
  • Chili
  • Parmesan Cheese

If you are like me you will often walk to the fridge and scratch your head at the weird ingredients in there that are all bits and bobs from previous recipes and that you have no fucking idea what to do with. You probably end up throwing a load of perfectly good stuff in the bin and it is with that in mind that I came up with this gorgeous pasta that uses up everything in the fridge. Have a look at the ingredients and I bet you any money you have a good collection of them there on the bottom shelf already. The best thing about the whole thing? Read in about 10 minutes or less! Lash a pot of boiling water on and give this a go. Epic.

Instructions

Step 1

The ingredients are really simple and stuff that you have typically lying around the fridge. I use the fresh pasta because it is way faster.

Step 4

So all the flavour is going to come from the garlic, chili and rosemary. Chop them all up as small as you can and if you want an extra kick live the seeds in the chili.

Step 5

Fuck in a good bit of oil in to a large pan and warm it up to a slow to medium heat. Don's be shy with it as it'll form the base of the sauce

You've done all the hard work now just keep them all moving in the pans.

Step 14

When the pasta is cooked fuck it straight in to the sauce. A bit of the cooking water can go in there to help with the sauce as well.

Step 15

Once the pasta is in fuck the parmesan and parsley in as well

Step 16

That is everything in there now all you need to do is start mixing it all up. Add in a bit of salt and pepper too at this stage.

So you’ve made a delicious pasta dish in less than 10 minutes with all the shitty stuff at the bottom of your fridge. What more can you ask for than that! Mix it up a bit and fuck a couple of different types of meat in there or play around with the herbs. Once you get the hang of this you’ll treat it as one of your “go to” dishes. Takes absolutely fucking gorgeous!
