Easy and Delicious Weeknight Pasta

Hello friends! I know I know, I’ve been totally M.I.A. So sorry! I’ve been consumed with work and personal life stuff.

But I have still been cooking. I just need to get all these posts up. I have a ton of recipes to share with you, so bare with me as I post them.

I hope you all had a wonderful Mother’s Day. I made brunch for my family — so excited to share the recipes with you, especially the egg casserole – it was so good!

For today, I wanted to share a super simple recipe. As I said in a past post, ingredients are the key to a good dish, especially olive oil. And especially in this dish because of the few ingredients. This is a really great weeknight dinner when you’re tired and don’t want to whip up a storm. The olive oil and parmesan cheese (look at that cheese — so good!!)–and you could say the black pepper too–are so important in this dish. The smells are just so inviting. I could eat a whole pound of this pasta – no joke.


Peasants Pasta – stepped up!


1 lb of your favorite pasta
3 tablespoons of a good olive oil
fresh cracked black pepper to taste ( I like a lot)
fresh grated Parmesan cheese


Bring a pot of water to a boil
Add your favorite kind of pasta and cook according to directions on the back (al dente!)
Drain pasta quickly — its ok to have some of the left over water dripping.

Add the olive oil and mix up good. Feel free to add more olive oil if needed. Add the cracked black pepper and stir.

Add the pasta to serving dishes and add fresh grated dish.

Eat the whole pound of pasta. OK not really, its nice to share.
