Pasta with Toasted Bread Crumbs
adapted from Giada De Laurentiis
- 1 pound dried pasta
- 3/4 c extra-virgin olive oil
- 2/3 c Italian seasoned dried bread crumbs
- Sea salt & pepper
- 1/4 c grated Parmesan
Meanwhile, in a medium-sized saute pan, heat the oil until warm. Since the bread crumbs will cook quickly, you don't want to add them into a hot pan, otherwise they can burn. Add the bread crumbs & stir constantly. Season lightly with salt & pepper since flavored bread crumbs may already have seasoning. Saute for about 2 minutes. Remove from heat & set aside.
Drain pasta in a colander. Working quickly, add pasta to the saute pan & stir to combine. Add Parmesan & pour into large serving bowl.
