PASTA WITH SPICY TOMATO SAUCE


For a change, I love to cook this pasta cooked in spicy tomato sauce. It has slightly tangy and sweet flavor. Besides prawn, that I'd added you can opt for chicken pieces. Throw in some vegetables of your choice, this has became a complete meal by itself..

For chili paste, you can buy a tub from supermarket or make your own using 10-15 dried chili, soak in hot water for a few minutes then drain and blend. If you love spicy food, it is economical to grind a lot more for future use.

In case you are vegetarian, do omit the  prawn/ chicken, replace them with tofu.

PASTA WITH SPICY  TOMATO SAUCE
Serves    4-5

400g pasta of your choice, cooked according to packet instruction
250g chicken/prawn  shelled and deveined
2 TB  chili paste
4 cloves garlic chopped
2 medium onion chopped
4 cups chicken/vegetable stock
4 TB  tomato puree
3 TB  chili sauce
1 can button mushroom sliced
coriander leaves for garnish
3 TB olive oil
salt and sugar to taste


METHOD

Heat the oil in a deep pot, add in the onion, fry until translucent about 10 minutes..

Add the garlic, fry until fragrant.

Pour in the chili paste and fry until the oil floats on top. Add in tomato paste and salt.

Add in the chicken pieces if using, fry for 1 minutes, pour in the stock and bring to boil. If using prawn, add them after the broth is boiling.

Once the chicken is tender, add in chili sauce,  mushroom,  sugar and salt.

Simmer for 1-2 minutes, off the heat.

To serve, place the cooked pasta in a serving bowl, pour the sauce over the pasta,  garnish with coriander leaves.

Love the look of those big slices of mushrooms in that dish! Thanks for sharing it on Tuesday's Tasty Tidbits. It took my all week to get around to reading your recipe...haha. I would start at the bottom and then switch to the top and I guess yours was in the middle. But, I am glad I took the time to read yours. I like your blog.
