Anything in the Fridge Pasta
- In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta until al dente (approximately 8 minutes); reserve 1/2 cup pasta water. Drain the pasta and reserve.
- In same pot, heat oil over medium. Add garlic, herbs, and red-pepper flakes. Cook, stirring, until garlic is golden, 1 to 3 minutes. Add in your fun items (diced tomato, peas, anchovies, etc.)
- Remove from heat; return pasta to pot. Zest the lemon skin into the pasta and then cut the lemon in half and squeeze in the juice. Adjust consistency with the reserved pasta water.
- Finish with salt, pepper, and freshly grated parmesan.
Experiment with fun things from the fridge: prosciutto, ham, anchovy, peas, fresh diced tomato, or what ever suits your fancy!
