Ingredients

Method

1.

Cook spaghettini in boiling salted water following pack instructions. Drain well, then return to pan. 

2.

Meanwhile, roughly tear bread slices and put in the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until coarse crumbs form. Heat 1/2 of the olive oil in a large frying pan over a medium heat and add breadcrumbs. Cook, stirring for five minutes or until toasted. Transfer to a plate and set aside.

3.

Add remaining oil, onion, garlic, chilli and zest to the same pan. Cook for 2 minutes, then mix in breadcrumbs and remove from heat. Season, then stir in basil.

4.

Toss pasta with pecorino, then mix into sauce. Serve with extra pecorino, lemon and parsley.
