How to cook
Make the Pasta
Put water into a pot with medium-high heat and wait until it is boiling, then put the pasta in along with 1/2 tsp of salt. Cook for 9-10 minutes.
Prepare the other Ingredients
Slice the garlic, bird's eye chili, red hot chili pepper, onions (if used), protein and vegetables.
Drain the Pasta but save some water
Once the pasta is cooked, drain the water but save some of the pasta water. Optional to cover the pasta in some oil so it does not stick to each other.
COOK THE PASTA
Put the pan on medium heat, put the butter and toss in the garlic and chilies, protein and a pinch of salt and stir fry them until it becomes aromatic and the garlic seems a little brown.
Now add in the pasta, vegetables, pasta water, milk, and corn flour solution (if you're using this). Wait until it starts to boil, while stir it from time to time. Add cheese and season it with salt and black pepper to your taste.
Put it on a place
Put it on a plat and sprinkle some parsly. Enjoy!
