380g Spaghetti
75g powdered Parmesan
100g butter
1 bag Rocket
4g cracked (or) ground black pepper
Olive oil


1. Place a pan of salted water on the stove and bring to the boil

2. Add the spaghetti and cook in the water until just cooked for around 9-10 minutes

3. In a large frying pan, pour a touch of vegetable oil and the black pepper and cook for 2-3 minutes on a medium heat

4. Add the butter and let it melt, now carefully remove the pasta from the other pot straight into the pan and toss well

5. Pour over most of the parmesan and add 2 ladles of the pasta cooking water, then take the pan off the heat and mix well so it creations a light sauce texture

6. Season well and serve straight away and finish by tossing the rocket in olive oil, salt and the left-over parmesan
