Step 1: Ingredients
*Pasta: your favourite one. I'm using dry spaghetti (100 g per person), but type of noodels it's up to you.
*Green peas: Shown canned peas (350 g). If you will not use canned peas, cook the peas until tender.
*Garlic: at least two cloves.
*Baked potato: really otional, just a leftover and decided to put in the dish.
*Olive oil: or another type to taste.
Not shown: salt and black pepper to taste.
Step 2: Mash it up!
Step 3: Pasta time
Step 4: Garlic
Step 5: Bring in the peas
Step 6: Almost there...
At this point I diced an added the potato.
Step 8: Optionals
*Add some chopped bacon or pancetta to the garlic before adding the peas, tasty.
*You can also add some diced lean meat (pork loin, chicken breasts) and stir fry it. Add the garlic and go on.
*A dash of tabasco or another hot sauce is a nice variation.
Gluten-free: just use your favorite gluten free pasta instead of regular noodles and you are done (assuming you just used gluten free ingredients in all the steps).
