As complicated as the name sounds, well at least for a non-Italian speaker like me 🙂 , spaghetti Aglio e Olio is one of the simplest and most fuss-free dishes I’ve come across. If you get the quantity of garlic and olive oil right, (yes, that’s what aglio e olio translates to), this dish is the bomb! You’ll want to slurp it away right off the pan, leaving you completely contented.Continue reading “Spaghetti Aglio e Olio with Mushrooms | Full Meal”
Sometimes you wish for something and you get something else in return totally unexpected. That is how unpredictable life is. I believe food and life are very similar to each other. You can make anything out of it. Be it a complete mess or something nice and beautiful! Something worth tasting. 🙂 Usually, you need a particular sauce to go with your plain boiled pasta. But, what if you don’t want to make any? No worries, this pasta I’ve made here doesn’t require you to make any kind of sauce and is quick and easy to prepare. Oh! And of course, delicious too. No compromising on taste. Feel free to use your own choice of vegetables.Continue reading “Easy: Vegetables in Penne Pasta”
Pasta is definitely my weakness. I can hog onto a good plate of pasta at anytime of the day. Moreover, it is such a flexible dish to prepare and requires no fixed ingredients. The one I have made here is light on the palate and at the same time quite flavorsome as well. Also, over here I have prepared Alfredo Sauce with wheat flour. It is a healthier and an easier option and there are very less chances of lumps being formed while preparing the sauce. It was pretty weird for me to try it out with wheat flour for the first time, but surprisingly it tasted the same as the actual white sauce. Since then, I prefer to make white sauce the way I’ve mentioned below. Hope you all give it a try. 🙂Continue reading “Pasta in Green Chili and Homemade Alfredo Sauce”
I simply adore pasta; both cooking and eating it, of course. 😉 I like to try them out with different flavors and sauces. Sometimes, they turn out great and a few other times–let’s just say, not so great! Eggplant/Aubergine/Brinjal- whatever name suits you best– in pasta might not be a new combination, but I was trying to make it for the first time. I was a little hesitant at first wondering what if it becomes too lacy or the taste of eggplant overpowers the whole dish? Thankfully, nothing like that happened. 🙂 It just gave a subtle flavor to the whole dish and gelled very well with the tomatoes.
Did you know: Eggplant tastes bitter in its raw form. Therefore, the fruit should go through a process called ”degorging” which involves soaking sliced or diced vegetables/fruits in salt water, resulting in loss of moisture and removal of the bitterness from them. Make sure to rinse them in clean water before use. This process also reduces oil absorption of the vegetables.Continue reading “Fusilli with Baked Eggplant and Marinara Sauce”
