    Made pasta tonight and I went with fusili with basil pesto, tomatoes and garlic butter shrimp. It is also National Tequila Day so I had some Sprite with Tequila and lemon juice.






    Spoiler: ingredienti e altre immagini

    First off, I apologize if I butchered the words. Put in "ingredients and other pictures" into Google Translate.


    Shrimp, minced garlic, home grown tomato halves, homegrown lemon, basil pesto sauce, fusili pasta.


    Cooked to al dente and strained.


    Garlic butter and shrimp. Squeezed some lemon occasionally for that extra zest. Also added some brandy because why not. It was already sitting there on the kitchen counter haha.


    Shrimp is all cooked and smelling amazing. Cooked the heads too because my dad wanted that.



    Next was the sauce. I placed the shrimp on a separate plate first and added in some olive oil, basil pesto and tomatoes into the skillet.


    Also, PASTAAAA :blessed

    1/2 bell pepper
    1 bacon (or ham, sausage, hot dogs)
    1 cloves garlic
    parmesan cheese
    ----

    1. In a pot, add water and salt and boil. Add spaghetti and cook according to the package directions.

    2. Sprinkle the oil on the cooked spaghetti to prevent sticking.

    3. Cut the onion, bacon, bell pepper and garlic into bite sized pieces.

    4. Coat the pan with oil, fry the garlic, onion, bacon and bell pepper in such order.

    5. Add cooked spaghetti and ketchup and keep frying.

    6. Sprinkle parmesan cheese to taste.

    Easy Chow Mein



    Pasta, what associations do you get when you hear that delicious word? All time Italian favorites, Bolognese, pasta primavera, spaghetti and meatballs, and etc. For me, Pasta brings the feeling of little Italian cafes and restaurants filled with the smell of Parmesan cheese and meat sauces cooking on the stove all day long. However, I wanted to do something different for this contest and make Chinese Chow Mein as my entry instead of one of the Italian signature dishes. Because why not? Variety is the spice of life.

    It is so simple to make and doesn't take a lot of time, so it's perfect if you're busy and still want a good homemade meal. What makes it really good is the sauce, the oil you cook it in, and the special noodles made just for Chow Mein. Another great thing about this dish is that it can be vegetarian as well, just skip the chicken as in my case and only make it with vegetable and don't forget the sauce and you're all set. Great option for vegetarians. And it is so full of different vegetables, I just love it. Can never have enough vegetables. That pop in the color and in taste.

    I still wanted to add some salad on the side for more distinctive taste. The salad is the fresh addition with just arugula, croutons, sprinkled parmesan cheese on top and your favorite salad dressing (although I would recommend going with Balsamic Vinaigrette or Raspberry Vinaigrette). I know it is not traditional for the Chinese Chow Mein to have it with a salad, but I think the two of them go well together.
    Spoiler:



    Ingredients:
    For Chow Mein

    -Special Chow Mein noodles-
    -Skinless boneless Chicken Thighs (if you prefer meat in there)-
    -Vegetables (Fresh would be better, but frozen is another option, broccoli, onions, carrots, peppers)-
    -Soy Sauce-
    -Sesame Seed Oil-
    -PF Chang's Sesame Sauce (the thickness of it makes the dish as I said earlier, and don't get any kind of it but Sesame Oil flavor, it works the best)-

    For Salad
    -Arugula-
    -Croutons (Cheese and Garlic ones, oh yeah)-
    -Parmesan Cheese-
    -Dressing of your preference-

    Process
    It is extremely easy to make. Pan sear the meat of your preference (it can be chicken/pork/beef) in sesame oil, take it out once it is done and shred it or cut it in smaller pieces, set aside. Add vegetables, water, let it simmer and enjoy the aroma. When the vegetables are almost done, add the noodles and keep mixing them with the vegetables. The noodles will not take a long time, once they are softened the dish is done. Voila, add as much sauce and soy sauce as you desire and enjoy this dish.
    Spoiler:










    It is one of my specialties and the whole place smells like sesame when I'm making it, the smell is unbelievable. I am definitely taking this creation to my coworkers after making it every time because they simply love it.
