Method

Cook the pasta in boiling water with a little salt and a dash of olive oil until al dente.

Meanwhile, mince up the garlic, rocket and chillies (you might want to taste them to see how they are first) and set aside. Zest and juice the lemons and set aside.

Drain the pasta and combine with the garlic, rocket and chilli mixture. Add the olive oil, lemon juice and zest, salt and pepper, cherry tomatoes and parmesan. Toss well.

Give the pasta a little taste to see if it needs more chilli, garlic, or lemon. Serve with a cool glass of white wine!
