Fettuccini al burro aglio e peperoncini

It was one of those days, rainy and miserable outside, mind blank on what to make for dinner and shopping out of the question. I rummaged through the cabinets and found some fettuccini and pepper flakes found butter and a bottle of store bought crushed garlic. Opened my culinary brain and put together this quick dish. By the way the title translate to Fettuccini with butter garlic and red pepper flakes.

You will need:
– about ¼ pound per serving
Unsalted butter – 4 TBSP per serving
Crushed Garlic – to taste, I used about 1 TBSP
Peperoncini – to taste, if you don’t like heat leave it out.

In a stock pot large enough to hold the pasta bring 2 quarts of well salted water to a boil. Once the water starts to boil add the pasta and stir so it doesn’t clump together.

While the pasta cooks (should take up to 10 minutes) put the butter, garlic and pepperoncini into a sauce pan and sauate until the butter melts and the garlic starts to cook. Be careful not to let it burn. When the pasta is cooked add it to the butter mixture and add a good helping of pecorino romano cheese and freshly ground pepper. Enjoy!
