Pasta

Standard

The FBAI and Olive Tree Trading had gifted me with a hamper of their Products – olive oil, Europaea milk and Quinoa. Asked us to try these products in the daily dishes we prepare. I have been using these products in salads, pastas and dessert I make for my family. I am really impressed by the quality of these products. The milk is so rich and pure that no cream was required when I made the Panna Cotta. Also the simple pasta which I made using olive oil took us to the Italian Nonna’s kitchen. I will be sharing the Panna Cottas recipe in my next post ,in this will share the pasta recipe.

Ingredients:

Spaghetti 1 pack, garlic 3/4 cloves finely chopped, 1 onion chopped. 1 capsicum chopped. Handful of basil. Olive oil 5/6 tabspoon. Parmesan cheese 1 cup grated. Whole wheat flour 1 tabspoon. Milk 3/4 cups. Salt and pepper as per the taste.


Method:

Boil water enough to soak the Spaghetti and cook it not fully. Leave it little uncooked / al dente. Drain and drizzle a few drops of olive oil. In a heavy bottom pan heat some olive oil and saute onions, capsicum and garlic for a few mins. Drizzle some wheat flour and stir fry till it becomes golden. Pour hot milk and let it boil into a beautiful white sauce. Add the Spaghetti and season with salt and pepper. Tear some basil and garnish. Just before serving drizzle some more olive oil and grated Parmesan cheese.

One can add meat, seafood or veggies of your choice to this pasta.
