Elbow Macaroni With Toasted Breadcrumbs


2 cups cooked elbow macaroni (or any other pasta)
4 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 cup bread crumbs (plain, Italian Style, Panko, the choice is yours)
1/2 teaspoon paprika
dollop of mayo


Into a skillet over medium heat, pour olive oil, add breadcrumbs of your choice, salt, pepper, crunched chili peppers, and stir until breadcrumbs become golden brown and crunchy, about 3 - 4 minutes. Add cooked elbow macaroni or pasta of your choice, stir to cover all the macaroni/pasta with breadcrumbs, and let cook for another minute or two. Keep on stirring!
Serve topped with some grated Parmesan cheese and a dollop of mayo! YUM!!!


Now about the recipe. As I said many times before, my oldest son is studying Pharmacy overseas and he started to cook at his home away from home. Simple, easy dishes, just yesterday he treated himself with crapes with Nutella filling. One of the simplest ways to prepare pasta is to just toss it with some toasted breadcrumbs and enjoy with a dollop of mayo and a side of salad. Variation is the key to make things interesting, right? I used elbow macaroni, but any kind of pasta will do just fine, as I learned through the years: In cooking there is no wrong way, there is just my way and your way!
