Spicy Pasta with Garlic and Chili Peppers

This is a easy and filling go to meal for when you are on a time crunch.

We have made it with many different vegetables, just use what you have on hand, fresh or frozen.  It is quick, and filling, and oh so yummy.  

Using shredded Parmesan cheese, or freshly grated Parmesan cheese makes all the difference.

Using enough garlic is important (we like a lot of garlic), hence this pasta is meant to be garlic flavored, be careful not to burn the garlic, or it will have a bad aftertaste.


Spicy Pasta:

1 lb. Spaghetti noodles cooked 
Chopped garlic 3-4 cloves or More (I use chopped garlic in a jar and add 2 Tb.)
4 Tb. Olive oil
Shredded Parmesan cheese
1-2 tsp. Chili pepper flakes

2-4 cups Broccoli florets (Or) Asparagus, zucchini, snow pea pods, Kale, etc.
1 Lb.Shrimp (optional)

In a large skillet, put olive oil in and saute your chopped Garlic
Add your vegetables, and shrimp If you are using it, and saute. 
And chili pepper flakes, 
Add pasta and toss to distribute over pasta.  
Sprinkle Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper over the noodles and serve

Hope you enjoy it as much as we do...
