I roasted a large shallot in a pan with enough olive oil to coat the base for 4-5 minutes or until shallot's ends started to turn brown. Then added one cup drained can of peas. Let that simmer on low flame for 10-15 minutes (go by taste/texture). In separate pot cooked couple handfuls of spaghetti till al dente. Just make enough to eat.
