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! read more

Macaroni Soup with Seaweed

I added mixed peas. These mixed peas make the dish much more appetizing and presentable. Kids love colours, don’t they. Not just that, these mixed peas complement the taste of the bland macaroni. Scope and eat them together makes your soup macaroni meal more interesting! read 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.

There is always better to cook at home than dine-out, spend at lower cost to get better quality food (Of course, it’s without crew services, and you have to wash your own utensils after cooked and plates after meal!). I added prawns to my ham and mushroom spaghetti. read more
