    Default What's your favourite pasta recipe?

    We all do it - no energy or inspiration and then we remember the pasta!
    What are your fave quick and easy pasta dishes - the ones you can almost always rustle up from the larder and the fridge in less than 20 mins.

    Mine: Spaghetti Carbonara (pasta + bacon + egg) and Pasta Genovese (pasta + green beans + potato + botttled pesto sauce)

    I love carbonara but I can never perfect the sauce. I want the sauce to be all creamy like at the restaurant but when I try to make it, it turns into some white sauce that has bits of scrambled eggs...

    If you think it's crazy, you ain't seen a thing. Just wait until we're goin down in flames.

    *techinically it takes me about 30 min. but it's soooo good. (Plus, about 10 min. is inactive cook time.) This dish has sooo much flavor--usually I even increase the crushed red pepper and garlic!

    Shrimp Fra Diavolo

    1 pound large shrimp, peeled, deveined
    1 teaspoon salt, plus additional as needed
    1 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper flakes
    3 tablespoons olive oil, plus 1 to 2 tablespoons
    1 medium onion, sliced
    1 (14 1/2-ounce) can diced tomatoes
    1 cup dry white wine
    3 garlic cloves, chopped
    1/4 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
    3 tablespoon chopped fresh Italian parsley leaves
    3 tablespoon chopped fresh basil leaves

    Toss the shrimp in a medium bowl with 1 teaspoon of salt and red pepper flakes. Heat the 3 tablespoons oil in a heavy large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp and saute for about a minute, toss, and continue cooking until just cooked through, about 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer the shrimp to a large plate; set aside. Add the onion to the same skillet, adding 1 to 2 teaspoons of olive oil to the pan, if necessary, and saute until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes with their juices, wine, garlic, and oregano. Simmer until the sauce thickens slightly, about 10 minutes. Return the shrimp and any accumulated juices to the tomato mixture; toss to coat, and cook for about a minute so the flavors meld together. Stir in the parsley and basil. Season with more salt, to taste, and serve.

    my favourite at this point in time is pasta fresca, usually penne tossed with fresh, diced tomatoes, olive oil, chopped garlic, fresh basil and mozzarella. Its a great cold pasta dish, and yet oddly aromatic and full of flavour. Make sure you make the pasta al dente, because the fresh tomatoes will produce lots of juice, and you dont want it to make your pasta too squishy...
