Chef Tips

Red pepper flakes are quite spicy. If you want less heat, add a whole dried red pepper to the oil along with the minced garlic and cook them together for 2 minutes or until the garlic is just turning golden. Carry on as per recipe. Just before serving the pasta, remove it from the pan so that no one bites into it.
