Pasta meals any one
I know all the foodies who like little bit of my cooking must be upset with me as I have not posted any food recipe since long.It is not my fault though .There is nothing like “maa ke haath ka khaana”:D . I ate so much at my mom’s place that at one point of time I thought I will burst .Hubby kept saying “I hope you are not eating much there because later on you will crib.”(Actually he was jealous because I was getting to eat best food and he was surviving on bread and butter here )
I guess there will be no house who won’t have dry fruits on Diwali. I came back with some 2-3 kgs of dry fruits myself and therefore making Pasta with walnut was something which I was longing to do.Recipe is pretty simple and it will take just 15 minutes in making it.If you want to include nuts in your food then this pasta recipe can be of considered.
Here goes my pasta recipe with walnuts
Serves – 2-3 adults
Some 375 gm of spaghetti pasta (I used half of my packet )
4-5 garlic cloves diced
2 chopped red chilli
Bread crumbs of 2 large breads .(I used brown bread.You can use white bread too)
2-3 tbsp of chopped walnuts.
5-6 soft spinach finely chopped(Take fresh leaves for best taste.You can blanch them for 2 minutes to soften them up)
2- 3 tbsp Olive oil (Use Olive oil and no other oil for this.It brings special taste to pasta)
Method and Preparation:-
Step1- Boil spaghetti as mentioned on the packet drain and keep it aside.
Step 2- Take a heavy sauce pan and add 1tbsp. of olive oil in it.Throw in chopped garlic, red chilli and cook it on slow flame for 1 -2 minute.
Step3 – Add bread crumbs , walnuts and saute both of them for 5 minutes on slow flame.
Step4 – When bread crumbs turns crispy add pasta , spinach and rest of the olive oil.
Step5 -Cover the pan for a minute so that all things gets wilted and pasta gets heated too.
Step6 – Add some sea salt according to your taste and freshly ground black pepper.(You can use normal salt and pepper powder too but if you use sea salt and fresh pepper it tastes heavenly )
Garnish with some grated Parmesan cheese (I avoided the cheese) and serve hot .Want some
