Pasta for One!

Lets be honest, everyone loves pasta...but often the effort prompts a takeout, especially if you are cooking for just one. So the other day when Ma decided she wanted pasta for dinner it prompted a long pros-cons discussion. But hey! when she wants pasta, she gets pasta!!! Rustling this pasta for one was a real breeze, just a few ingredients from the trusty cupboard and we were good to go :)

a handful of uncooked Spaghetti
2 cheese-chicken sausages
4 flakes garlic
1/2 tsp mixed herbs
2 1/2 cups hot stock or boiling water
2 tsp olive oil
salt  and pepper to taste

Method: Heat oil in a pan and fry the sausages till well done. Take out the sausages and in the same oil fry the minced garlic till brown. Add the stock/water, herbs, salt and the spaghetti. Cook till pasta is done. Typically, all the liquid should be absorbed by this point. If required, add more stock/water. Sprinkle pepper and top with  sliced sausages. Just dig in and go mmmmm!!
And hey, don't forget, all cooking is open to re-invention...share yours :D
