A wonderfully decadent pasta dish that I sometimes cook when I'm in the mood for something quick and hearty. The dish is a kind of fusion of Asian flavors mixed with Italian, which I think turns out really well. It's certainly not the healthiest dish, so you shouldn't eat it every day, but for a lazy and fancy weekend dinner, it's perfect.

If you want even more garlic, you can make a kind of garlic chips simply by slicing garlic (approx. 30g) and then heating them in olive oil (approx. 60g). As soon as the garlic starts to color - remove the pan from the heat and let the chips cook in the afterheat. Then take the chips out of the oil and let them dry on paper until serving.

  1. Start cooking the pasta in approx. 1 liter of salted water.
  2. While the pasta is cooking, melt the butter in a large frying pan. Slice the garlic and cook in the melting butter.
  3. When the garlic starts to get some color - add soy sauce, oyster sauce and chilli flakes. If the pasta is not fully cooked at this point, remove the pan from the heat temporarily.
  4. When the pasta is cooked - save a little cooking water (approx. 1 dl), but strain off the rest.
  5. Add the pasta to the frying pan and fry on a medium to high temperature for a minute. Use some of the saved pasta water to get a creamy consistency.
  6. Remove the frying pan from the heat and add the grated cheese - stir to mix everything.
  7. Serve the pasta with some sliced green onions on top. Also add more grated cheese if desired.
