Recipe

Yield: 4 portions

Prep Time: 5 min

Cook Time: 15 min

Total Time: 20 min

500 gr Bucatini (thick spaghetti), or pasta that you prefer

3 large cloves of garlic, minced

1 tsp freshly ground pepper

  3. When they are heated add the crushed garlic and saute for 2 minutes until it is golden, aromatic, and crispy.
  4. Strain the bucatini (holding a cup of their water aside) and add them to the pan with the oil, butter, and garlic.
  5. Add half of crumbled feta and the cup of water, and stir gently for a minute until the sauce is all over.
  6. Time to fry your eggs and seasoning them with salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and chili flakes. One egg per serving.
  7. Serve immediately, place the portion of bucatini you need in a deep dish, add the rest of the crushed feta, and add the fried egg on top. Also, add more chili flakes if you want!
