Use the same pan as for the pasta, rinse it out and put on medium heat. Pour in 2 tablespoons olive oil and when good and hot, add 1 shallot, finely sliced.

Salt, pepper and cook for 1 minute without colouring.

Stage 3 - 5 min.

Tip the pasta back into the pan, mix well and leave to heat through for 1 or 2 minutes. That's all there is to it!
If the pasta is cooked more than 5 minutes before serving, drizzle a little olive oil over before mixing to keep it from sticking together.
Several days in the fridge, covered with plastic film.

Hamburgers don't have to be the greasy flabby things you find in fast-food outlets, well-made they can be excellent. It's a very convivial recipe as everything goes on the table, and everyone assembles their own burger according to personal taste.
