Pasta Olio

I guess the after effects from the running made us ridiculously hungry and crave for carbs, Last weekend, after the Nike Run, we had been eating carbo a lot...we were hungry most of the time..I guess it really built up our metabolism rate. Since, we had rice during the day, I thought we should not take rice again for dinner, plus we need to replace for slightly healthier carbo loading, so I think OLIO with olive oil should be okaayyyy:) of course carbs being carbs it should not be in my diet:(

I have problem looking for chilli flakes/red pepper flakes like the one in the above photo (this, I got from Domino's..everytime I ordered pizza, i will request for extra chilli flakes) the normal one I found in our local store, very finely chopped and it doesn't look nice.


  • 1/2 packet of pasta
  • 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • prawn
  • Green pepper and celery (cut up)
  • Chilli flakes /red pepper flakes
  • salt
  • 2 teaspoon of fresh squeeze lemon juice


  1. Cook pasta al dente. Drain and put aside
  2. Put the olive oil and the garlic in a large pan over a medium heat.
  3. When the garlic begins to change color add the prawn...stir.....then add salt and lemon juice
  4. Stir well and add green pepper and celery.
  5. Add pasta.
  6. Toss until the pasta is well coated with sauce.
  7. Serve and sprinkle chilli flakes on top

dah's really easy peasy:)
