Summer has always been hot and with the power outage at it’s peak, it’s even worse in Pakistan. I can’t even imagine what hell my friends and family are going through back home. It isn’t raining and it’s getting warmer each day. The clouds need to let some rain down on the poor inhabitants of the Earth.
I have been experimenting with cooking on and off these days (yes, even though it’s hot) because I am free from school. Yes. It feels so good to be free. Freedom is priceless 😀 So I thought why not just beat the heat with pasta. That’s what I did today because to be honest, I was tired of eating the regular spicy stuff. Not that my pasta wasn’t spicy, but it was a good change. Follow the following recipe for a quick 15 min pasta:
- 1 cup Fettuccine
- 1 bell pepper
- 1 tomato
- 1 tbs olive oil
- 2 tbs pasta sauce
- Salt, pepper as desired.
- 3 tbs shredded cheese
- Green coriander
- Green chillies
First, add 1 tbs of olive oil and salt in boiling water with fettuccine and let it boil until it’s soft but not mushy.
Now, cut tomato and bell pepper into thin slices. Heat the pan. Add the boiled fettuccine, all the spices, vegetables, cheese, etc. Mix everything with the heat turned off. You won’t need to add oil to the pan because fettuccine will be oily enough to not let anything stick to the pan. Toss everything around and garnish it with coriander and some more cheese if you’d like.
Now all you have to do is put it in a nice dish for yourself and eat away. Quick, fresh and healthy!
