Spicy Tomato Pasta with Tuna (Pork) Meatballs

“Restaurant standard pasta dish which can be served easily at home. To impress your loved ones, or visiting guests.”

Cooked this for my lunch meeting yesterday. Knowing that the cakes and desserts were the “highlight” of the session, we tried to keep our main course simple. Yup, made this meatball tomato pasta as part of my contributions to the potluck meal, I was glad that many of them enjoyed it pretty well!

Really nothing fanciful, my pasta dish was just one of the many versions. Of course, with a twist to adapt the pasta cooking as my own. read more

Linguine alle Vongole (Clams Linguine Pasta)

“Vongole is one of the popular pasta dishes.”

Yes, pasta is one of our staples at home. We all loved pasta, of all kinds. Yet to find out the best pasta brand, I used dried pastas which were easily available in the market, most of the time. I preferred organic pasta, if given a choice.

Clams, are also my favorite seafood. I personally thought clams are versatile and easy to handle. Minimal condiments would be needed to bring out its full flavor. So, cooking pasta with clams is no weirdo to many people. It simply is a brilliant idea as the pasta would just soak up the natural taste of the clams, making every strand of noodle taste extra flavorful. read more

Mac & Cheese (Tomato) for Toddler

“Mac & Cheese with a small twist to suit my son’s palate.”

As my son loved pasta in tomato base, I thought he would like his Mac & cheese to be with tomato taste, too. Not that he doesn’t take cream based, I just wanted to try out, hoping to make his meal the most pleasant one each time, if possible.

This version of my toddler meals is slightly more elaborated, and thus, a few more ingredients and steps are needed here. However, it’s still easy to follow. The same recipe could be adopted to adult meal, too, by adding a little salt and stuff. :) read more

Air-Fried Garlic Prawn Pasta

“You don’t need to pay restaurant price to get your no-frills ‘restaurant’ pasta”

In order to assemble quick and hassle free dinner, as I had to do up my rum raisin chocolate lava cake for supper, at the same time, I decided to air-fry a pasta dish.

Of course, you may cook this recipe as my usual ‘wok’ way, I just wished to save up the stirring and monitoring time in the cooking process so that I could fix up a supper dessert concurrently. Air-frying my pasta without the need of stir frying and watching out process, I was able to assemble our dinner within 15 minutes, and accomplished the two courses, from preparing to serving, both pasta and lava cake, within a total of 25 minutes. read more
