"This recipe is SUPER simple and incredibly tasty. If you like Pasta Aglio Olio (pasta with garlic and olive oil), you'll LOVE this. The salty, garlicky salami with the sweet green peas -- MMMM! You'll find yourself making it all the time!"

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Place pasta in the pot, and cook for 6 minutes. Mix in peas. Continue cooking 4 to 6 minutes, until pasta is al dente. Drain, and return to pot.
  2. Heat the oil and butter in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in green onions and garlic. Season with salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper. Cook and stir until green onions are tender. Mix in salami, and continue cooking until heated through. Transfer to the pot with the cooked pasta. Add Parmesan cheese, and gently toss.

To reduce the "oily" factor, I sliced the salami up and fried it in a pan on medium heat (it makes its own oil, so don't add any). I added the garlic into this once I saw it was getting crispy ...

Easy, definately! Unfortunately, it was unbelievably greasy. The salami & grease overpowered the entire dish. You could not taste the cheese at all-I even tried to add an extra 1/2c of an Italia...

This was AWESOME! Usually I prefer to try a recipe exactly as it's written before fiddling with it, but I found this recipe while trying to avoid a trip to the grocery store, so I used what I h...

I use this recipe a lot. I have made my own adjustments. I don't think anyone wants to hear them. This is a great tasting dish, that is somewhat healthy.

Tasty, easy. A good way to use up salami. I think my salami was the soft kind, not the hard, but it came out fine. I can see where some people might find it greasy--I think you could cut back a ...

Overall, we liked this, although by the end of the meal the greasiness got a bit over-powering from the salami coupled with the sauce. The flavors were good, though, and the peas were a nice add...

I loved this recipe! I used pecorino romano instead of parmesan, which was delicious!

This is a great quick dish. Because some others said it was a bit greasy, we cut down on the oil/butter - for two people we only used about 2 TBL oil and no butter. We also cooked the salami ahe...

I love this! I changed nothing about it, and I thought it was perfect. Much spicier than I expected.. which is a good thing! Yes, it is very greasy, but sometimes you're just in the mood for ...

This was very quick and delicious. I used farfalle pasta instead. Next time I might add some mushrooms.
