Method

20 min
 

1 Bring a large pot with salted water to the boil and cook the spaghetti until just done and still firm. Drain and set aside.

2 Put the ciabatta chunks in the bowl of a food processor and pulse to form crumbs.

3 Heat the butter and oil in a pan and add the breadcrumbs. Stir-fry for a minute, then add the garlic and stir-fry until the crumbs are golden brown and the garlic is fragrant.

4 Remove the pan from the stove and mix in the parsley, lemon zest and chilli flakes (if using). Season with salt and pepper.

5 TO FINISH

Transfer the spaghetti to a serving bowl and sprinkle 3⁄4 of the crumbs over. Season with the lemon juice and add the olive oil. Mix well. Sprinkle the rest of the crumbs over and serve with rocket and lemon wedges.
