Angle Hair Pasta with red pepper and Garlic Butter Pan Sauce

Quick and easy pasta preparation for one or two, depending on how hungry you are. No real pasta sauce necessary, kind of a Japanese vibe to it.



  • One non-stick pot
    • Nothing special, just large enough to cook a single serving of angle hair pasta.
  • Chef's knife.


  • 2oz Angle Hair Pasta
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced into thin strips.
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp butter
    • I rock unsalted but salted works, too.
  • 1 tsp garlic paste or minced garlic
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper 
  • 1 tbsp sliced green onions
  • 1 tsp furikake seasoning


  • Cook the pasta per the instructions on the pasta package, drain and hold off to the side in a bowl for later.
  • In the same non-stick pot, over medium heat, add cooking oil/spray and sliced red pepper. Cook until tender.
    • About 10 minute, stir occasionally
    • Once cooked, hold peppers off to the side in a bowl.
  • In the same non-stick pot, over medium heat, add butter garlic, and black pepper.
    • Combine the melting butter, garlic, and black pepper with a silicone spatula.
    • This shouldn't take long, about a minute tops.
  • In the same non-stick pot, add the previously cooked angle hair pasta and red peppers and toss together until everything is well combined and thinly coated in garlic butter.
  • Plate the pasta, sprinkle some furikake and green onions over the top of it and enjoy!
