I did stick to my seafood menu tonite.
Even though I know my seafood dish is not as healthy as some but at least we are decreasing our red meat consumption kan.
Kalau nak betul2 healthy, I should have made steamed fish makan dengan brown rice or grilled fish makan dengan salad aje kan….
But if I were to masak like that, the girls will memberontak and diaorang akan lagi rela makan toast aje for dinner, hahahaha….
But the dish I made for dinner tonite, everyone seemed to like it a lot.
I made creamy saffron seafood and vegetable linguine.
First I sauteed some dices onions and loads of garlic and fresh basil.
Then after they have wilted, I added 3 fresh tomatoes, chopped up, 1 carrot sliced thinly, 2 swiss brown mushrooms sliced thinly and 1 diced yellow capsicum.
Cook covered until everything is tender.
Add a bit of saffron which has been soaked in hot water to the vege mix.
Then add about 1/4 cup of cream and season with salt and pepper.
While the vege mix is cooking, cook the linguine until al dente and drained and set aside.
In a big frying pan, pan fry some marinara mix in garlic and salt and dried chilli flakes until cooked to your liking.
Tip the cooked pasta and the creamy mixed vege sauce into the marinara pan and toss all of them together until all the pasta and the marinara are well coated with the sauce.
Season again with salt and pepper.
Serve it with fresh basil, shaved parmesan and a big sprinkle of chilli flakes.
If you like your pasta to have more sauce, you can increase the amount of whipped cream used or you can add a bit of water to the sauce when you are cooking it.
If there’s a lot of sauce, a big chunk of crusty bread is a good accompaniment to the pasta .
Senang aje nak buat dia kan…
And kalau you present the dish nicely and ‘artistically’ on the plate, boleh kalah restaurant nya pasta!
