Are there some nights when you wonder how you're going to get supper cooked and on the table? Check out this 10 minute dinner which requires little prep and only 5 ingredients!

This scrumptious pasta dish is one of our household favourites. Many years ago, an Italian boss of mine had told me about this recipe. She gave no measurements and roughly described the process.

After many years of making this dish, I’ve fine-tuned the measurements. From beginning to end, this meal takes 8-10 minutes to prepare, requires five ingredients and the results are phenomenal! This is a fast and delicious dinner!

A side note though, this pasta dish is all about the garlic, so if you don’t like garlic, don’t bother.

Capellini Favolosi

Yield: 4-6

Capellini Favolosi


  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 of a bulb of garlic (minced) I usually use 3/4... but we LOVE garlic
  • 190 g of angel hair pasta
  • 1/3 cup fresh parsley (finely chopped)
  • Parmesan cheese


  • Prepare angel hair pasta as directed on the box.
  • Warm the olive oil over medium heat.
  • Saute the minced garlic until softened (don’t wait for it to turn brown or it will overcook).
  • Pour garlic/oil mixture over strained pasta.
  • Mix well.
  • Add chopped parsley. Mix.
  • Scoop onto plates and sprinkle freshly grated Parmesan cheese over top.

This dish can be eaten alone but also pairs well with grilled chicken and a glass of white wine. Enjoy!
