  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • a handful of leaves basil
  • 200-400ml vegetable or chicken stock


  • STEP 1

    Put everything except the stock in a small pan with a small pinch of salt, and a good grind of black pepper.

  • STEP 2

    Add enough stock to just cover the pasta: how much will depend on how big the pan is. Bring to a gentle simmer. Cook for 8-12 minutes, stirring the pasta occasionally to coat in the sauce.

  • STEP 3

    Simmer until the pasta is tender and the liquid reduced to a sauce. Serve with more basil if you like.
