Quick chilli garlic and lemon pasta with a Clonakilty Black Pudding Crumb. A very quick pasta dish for 2 with loads of flavour.


2 x 1cm Clonakilty Black Pudding slices

2 garlic cloves, sliced

1 red chilli, sliced

3 tbsp olive oil

250g spaghetti (no 3)

½ lemon, juiced


2 tbsp Fresh parsley, finely chopped



  1. Clonakilty Black Pudding crumb – in a small non-stick fry pan over medium heat, pan fry the Clonakilty Black Pudding 2 minutes each side, then set aside to cool. This is ready to crumble over the dish when serving.
  2. Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil. Cook the spaghetti according to instructions – no 3 is a thick spaghetti and generally takes around 5 minutes. Once cooked drain well over another pan to keep the pasta water.
  3. Over medium heat gently pan fry the garlic and chilli until the oil is nicely flavoured – be very careful not to burn the garlic.
  4. Add lemon juice – this can also help slow the cooking quickly if the garlic is star ting to brown. Throw in the cooked pasta with a few spoons of the pasta water – this helps thicken the sauce from the starch now in the water.
  5. Divide between bowls, sprinkle with the Clonakilty Black Pudding crumb, the parsley and grated parmesan.
