Serves: 4+
  • 250g pasta of choice (I used whole grain pasta shells, but you can use any kind of pasta you want)
  • 1 garlic head
  • 6 Tbsps extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 slices of toast, extra-crispy, crushed by hand into tiny bits
  • 10 fresh sage leaves
  • 6 Tbsps nutritional yeast flakes / grated vegan cheese or grated parmesan (optional, but recommended)
  • 1-2 pinches of peperoncino
  • salt and ground pepper, to taste
  1. Peel the garlic cloves and slice them.
  2. Boil pasta in salted water and drain.
  3. In a large frying pan, add oil, chopped sage and sliced garlic cloves. Cook on medium heat until slightly golden.
  4. DO NOT LET IT TURN BROWN! The garlic must not get burnt.
  5. Once golden, remove from heat.
  6. Boil pasta in salted water and drain.
  7. Add pasta to the pan. Add salt, pepper, peperoncino, crushed toast and optional, grated parmesan or for vegans, grated vegan cheese / nutritional yeast flakes.
