Dave’s Pasta Piccante

Pasta Piccante - Served

This is my Pasta Piccante recipe for one person. This is a great meal when I am home by myself. Or if I am after something quick and tasty to eat. Treat the ingredients as a suggestion only.

I made some fresh pasta a couple of days ago. I just needed to cook it then I am good to go.


Mise en place
Here are the ingredients chopped up and ready to cook. The pasta pictured is uncooked frozen fettecini. It just needs 8 minutes in boiling water and it is ready to use.


Pasta Piccante - Napoli Sauce

Dave's Pasta Piccante
  • Olive oil
  • 30 g Salami (hot)
  • 20 g Mushrooms
  • 1 Hot Chili
  • 20 g Olives
  • 80 g cooked Pasta
  • 1 Cup Napoli Sauce
  • Fresh Basil
  • Grated Parmesan Cheese
  1. Cook the salami in olive oil over medium heat until it starts to sizzle.
  2. Add the mushrooms, chillies and olives. A bit of olive oil over the top. Mix the ingredients until the mushrooms have soaked up the oil and flavour from the salami.
  3. Add extra olive oil if it looks too dry.
  4. Mix in the fettuccine, this has usually cooled down by the time I add it so just make sure it is heated through and mixed in with the other ingredients. It should have a nice oily coating.
  5. Add the Napoli sauce, again just mix in and make sure it is heated through. Tear up some fresh basil and stir through.
  6. Serve and add grated parmesan and peper to taste.
