Last night, I went home early to prepare an Italian-inspired dinner for my family. Unfortunately, only my mama was home to try out my “Spicy Tuyo Pasta”.
I planned this dinner after I bought from friend Marivic Genuino’s business of bottled tuyo flakes a bottle of plain tuyo in corn oil last Thursday. They also offer tuyo flakes in sweet and sour, which was very tasty and appealing.
While cooking the pasta, I also had my fair share of good old San Miguel Pale Pilsen. Haha I like drinking while cooking, it makes you more FEARLESS and CREATIVE. 🙂
And so, last night, I prepared the pasta, and paired it with some verduras/greens with balsamic dressing and also fresh focacia with balsamic and olive oil dip.
INGREDIENTS for the Spicy Tuyo Pasta
1/2 of the Fisheria plain tuyo jar
1/2 of garlic
2 red chilis/siling labuyo
some basil leaves
3 small tomatoes
1 tablespoon of capers
2 tablespoons of green olives
2 teaspoons of Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon of butter
1 teaspoon of lemon juice
Spaghetti pasta noodles
First, saute tomatoes in olive oil until cooked. Next, add in the garlic and onions. Just at the moment some of the garlic turn brown, add the capers and olives as well as the butter. Do not let it dry. Immediately add the tuyo flakes, and include some of its oil. Let it simmer, then add the Worcestershire and lemon juice. Add in pasta that was drained, and mix in the basil.
Top it off with some Parmeggiano Reggiano.
