Source: Chef 2 Chef
Serves: 2

1/4 cup olive oil
1 dried chile, coarsely chopped
2 plump garlic cloves, sliced thinly
5 ounces fettuccini, cooked 'al dente'
2 tbsp. pine nuts, toasted in a nonstick skillet
1-1/2 tablespoons fresh basil, sliced thinly

Heat the oil in a pan over medium heat and add the chopped chile to infuse the oil for about 3 minutes. Set aside to cool. Then discard the chile.

Return the pan to a low heat, add the garlic and cook for 1 to 2 minutes to soften. Do not brown.

Toss the flavored oil with the hot, drained fettuccini. Top with the pine nuts and sliced basil and serve at once.
