Serves 4

Prep and cook time: 15 minutes

Ingredients

  • 400g dried curly fettuccine pasta

  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil

  • 4 cloves garlic, minced

  • 3 cm piece ginger, grated

  • 1/2 bunch onion chives, chopped

  • 2 tbsp Lainey's chilli oil

  • 1/2 Lebanese cucumber, sliced into long fine strips

  • 1/2 bunch fresh coriander (cilantro), roughly chopped

Method

  1. Cook curly pasta in boiling salted water according to instructions on the packet.

  2. Mix together all ingredients for the spicy sauce mixture; set aside.

  3. Place a large frying pan or wok over medium-high heat. Add oil and let it heat for a minute.

  4. Add grated ginger and sauté for half a minute, then add garlic. Keep sautéing until golden brown, careful not to let it burn.

  5. Add onion chives, then add Lainey's chilli oil. Stir for half a minute before adding pasta. Lower the heat.

  6. Give everything a good stir together, then add the soy mixture. Mix and toss until mixture covers all the pasta. Cook for another 3 minutes, then turn the heat off.

Serving suggestion: Plate it up in a bowl, then garnish with sliced cucumber, a few squeezes of mayonnaise, a sprinkle of sesame seeds and coriander (optional). Don't forget to add extra Lainey's chilli oil.
