Japanese-Fusion Style Spaghetti with Fresh Shiitake, Clams and Prawns

“Spaghetti with fusion cooking style that you will surely love it”

Called this recipe by listing out it’s main ingredients, I was not sure how to name this Japanese-Chinese-Western styles pasta dish. However, this recipe is rustic yet elegant.

This classic homemade dish calls for spaghetti smothered in a hearty chicken stock with a touch of Japanese Mirin. The spaghetti strands drew in the full essence of chicken stock and made it so flavourful and tasty. More

Sour Cream Bowtie Pasta

“Light and refreshing sour creamed pasta. Good as mains or eat as sides”

It’s beautiful in appearance with the choice of bowtie shaped pasta, and light savoury taste for the palate as a side dish with the use of sour cream instead of full cream or butter. Spice the pasta dish up with some chili flakes or paprika, this pasta is imaginably delicious and appetizing.

There was this old male friend of mine, asked me, where to get the sour cream, as he wanted to get one for his baked potatoes the other time. He tried looking for it in the supermarket at dry goods section (where you find bottled mayonnaise and other dressing), but in vain. So, now you know you won’t be able to find it at the dry goods area, of course. Fresh sour cream has to be refrigerated! Find sour cream in small tubs from the chilled compartment where you find butter, margarine, yogurt and whipped cream (smile). More

Macaroni and Cheese

Owing this Mac and Cheese recipe to one of my lovely readers, Ivy, who made this request in my Discussion Board of my Facebook Fan Club months ago, I first apologise for the late posting. And here I am sharing my recipe with you (winking smile)..

This is an express and simple-making dish, excellent as side dish or main course. If I cook this as main course, I will not make it over-cheesy to taste. Milder cheesy flavour will be good as large portion will be taken to fill up the stomach for the evening (smile). However, if you wish to cook some distinctive flavours or more creamy and stronger to taste, try adding in crumbled Rogue Creamery Oregon Blue cheese and whipping cream, instead of Dutch Edam cheese and milk (these are for lighter yet flavoursome cheesy taste).

I cooked this mac and cheese as dinner this evening. Since this was our main dish, I used the later combination instead of the former ones with below details: More

Tom Yam Macaroni Pasta

“When East meets West…”

I think Macaroni is one of the most versatile pastas. It can be cooked in Italian cuisine, in Chinese style, and now, even a Thai dish!

Impressive?! I am not sure, but if you are a Thai food lover, I am sure you’ll like this! I loved its spiciness as well as sourish flavour. It’s definitely worth spending time to make this dish for your loved ones! Moreover, with the abundance of toppings to favourite pasta, where can you get this besides your own home-cooked?!

Aglio Olio with Ham (Spicy Italian Pasta)

“Try my favourite Aglio e Olio! It’s simple to cook.”

Aglio Olio (Aglio e Olio) can be easily prepared at home. This is a tradition pasta dish, but resembling Chinese stir-fried noodle dish with loads of garlic and dried chili flakes (chuckling). Another main ingredient of Aglio Olio will be the olive oil. This pasta dish can be eaten with just the minced garlic, dried chili pepper and olive oil, or top it with salmon, hams or mushroom slices.

I made Aglio Olio entirely plain with only the “threesome” sauce during our Western-style dinner the other night, when I had many other dishes to go along, for instances, Dark Rum Pork Chop and baked king prawns. But not this time, I made only the pasta dish for our dinner. Hams and meat slices were added into this simple pasta dish (shhh… tell you a secret.. adding pork slices was because I had some leftover raw meat in my refrigerator the other day. Just didn’t want to keep the meat for too many days. I used it in my pasta dish.. :p).. Yes, great taste it yields! More

Low-Fat Spaghetti with Home Made White Sauce

“Delicate homemade white sauce in the faster recipe”

Remember I used to go Clarke Quay with my close female friends for dinner quite often, for a dinner gathering or before hitting to the high spots on Friday nights. We liked to dine in the French restaurants for their delicious spaghetti or pasta meal.

Nowadays, I do not dine out so often. I do home-cooking, home-cooked spaghetti, with my home-made spaghetti white sauce. More
