This could be a really easy quick meal for you – not many ingredients, not much preparation, ready within 15 minutes. And not a Jamie 15 minutes – A real 15 minutes. Just so long as you don’t make your own pasta, which I did. But it was still quick because it was leftover pasta. I’d made it the day before – I just needed to drop it into some boiling water and cook it for a few minutes.
Of course, you don’t need to make your own pasta. This will still be lovely with bought pasta. I’m just having a bit of a love affair with my pasta machine at the moment and that’s why most of my pasta dishes have changed from penne to tagliatelle. If I wasn’t making pasta, I’d have used penne for this, but that’s just me. You can use any type of pasta you like, even spaghetti, which is always way down at the bottom of my list. I accept that some people may love it. And that’s ok.
