A wonderfully decadent pasta dish that I sometimes cook when I'm in the mood for something quick and hearty. The dish is a kind of fusion of Asian flavors mixed with Italian, which I think turns out really well. It's certainly not the healthiest dish, so you shouldn't eat it every day, but for a lazy and fancy weekend dinner, it's perfect.
If you want even more garlic, you can make a kind of garlic chips simply by slicing garlic (approx. 30g) and then heating them in olive oil (approx. 60g). As soon as the garlic starts to color - remove the pan from the heat and let the chips cook in the afterheat. Then take the chips out of the oil and let them dry on paper until serving.

- Start cooking the pasta in approx. 1 liter of salted water.
- While the pasta is cooking, melt the butter in a large frying pan. Slice the garlic and cook in the melting butter.
- When the garlic starts to get some color - add soy sauce, oyster sauce and chilli flakes. If the pasta is not fully cooked at this point, remove the pan from the heat temporarily.
- When the pasta is cooked - save a little cooking water (approx. 1 dl), but strain off the rest.
- Add the pasta to the frying pan and fry on a medium to high temperature for a minute. Use some of the saved pasta water to get a creamy consistency.
- Remove the frying pan from the heat and add the grated cheese - stir to mix everything.
- Serve the pasta with some sliced green onions on top. Also add more grated cheese if desired.
