#PASTAPLATE: Leftover Pasta Aglio E Olio Recipe

If you’ve ever been tired of the old red-sauce/white-sauce combo for pasta, this ones for you!

The fancy name for this pasta is Aglio E Olio but at UNEATEN MATTERS we call it garlic oil goodness, delciousness? (we obviously just made that up)

This recipe cooks up to 4 serves so you can share it with friends and uses ingredients you can easily find at home (you can opt out of the meat + veges or substitute them if you like!)

Here is our version using ingredients we had on hand.



  • 2-3 garlic cloves crushed
  • 200g of mushrooms
  • 2 cups of spinach
  • 1/3 cup of olive oil
  • Chilli flakes
  • Pepper
  • Parmesan Cheese



  1. Pour a small amount of olive oil into a low heat frying pan
  2. Fry off the chorizos and cook the mushrooms
  3. Cook the spinach with the garlic and MOAR olive oil (olive oil is love, olive oil is life)
  4. Mix in your leftover pasta!
  5. Add chilli flakes, parmesan cheese and pepper to season


If you cook it, flaunt it using the #uneatenmatters and #foodporn hashtags and tag us in your pictures.
