1.In a large saucepan of boiling, salted water, cook pasta until just tender. Reserve 1 cup cooking water; drain.
2.Meanwhile, in a large frying pan, combine oil and chilli; heat gently over low heat, 8 minutes or until hot.
3.Add pasta to the chilli oil in the pan, with reserved cooking water and rocket; stir gently to combine. Season to taste. Serve with lemon wedges if liked.

Garlic-infused olive oil can be used instead of lemon infused oil. Or add 2 teaspoons lemon zest, finely grated, to regular extra-virgin olive oil.
