While most of us might chuck some spaghetti into boiling water and leave it at that, a Youtube clip by chef Donal Skehan proves there’s a much better – and way more delicious – way of serving up our favourite dish.

Controversially, it involves a frying pan.

In the clip, Donal chops up his ingredients for the sauce – garlic, chilli, onion and basil – and pops that along with his uncooked pasta into a pan.

Season to taste, drizzle in some olive oil and then add some liquid in the form of either chicken stock or water.

From there, it’s as simple as counting down 10 minutes, making sure to stir, and voila – deliciously easy pasta.

Not only does it look like one incredible carb hit, the best bit is there’s only one pot to wash afterwards.

We’re sold.
