  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tbsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp fresh ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream

  • Drizzle olive oil, add salt and pepper.
  • Add chicken stock and stir everything.
  • On medium-high heat bring to a boil. Cover and cook for 8-10. Half way through cooking give it a good stir to make sure the pasta does not stick together. Cover and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes or until pasta is cooked.
