Coriander, Chilli, Dill Linguine

Coriander and chilli are like my two sidekicks in the kitchen. Whenever I cook anything savoury they are my staple ingredients that bring fire and flavour to everything they touch. I wanted to share this really simple and quick dish which I love to make, it gives me a sense of being at home crossed with a pasta obsession during university.
For students this is cheap, cheerful and very tasty. Adding tuna, salmon or crab meat would compliment the dill wonderfully.
Ingredients for one:
1 small chilli, deseeded and chopped finely.
30g fresh coriander
20g fresh dill
Olive oil
Half a lemon
Pinch of sea salt
Half a tsp of turmeric powder
100g linguine pasta
Chop chill and herbs and keep to one side.
Boil linguine according to packet instructions.
Drain and add 1 tbsp olive oil and turmeric, stir well and lastly add herbs and chilli.
Squeeze lemon juice over pasta before serving and add salt if you need it.
