Advice: This recipe will feed 2 people with large appetites!

It's very cheap to make and very low in fat (apart from the cheese and butter - use half fat cheese if you want to reduce the calories, or olive oil instead of butter).

Don't overcook the pasta as it will make it a bit slushy.

Keep your eye on the garlic and chilli as it burns quickly!
