the one where Sachinky cooks and eats pasta willingly.

Mr. Sachinky loves pasta. I hate pasta. Actually, I think it's the heavy, creamy sauces that I dislike. Presenting a slightly healthier alternative -- my version of angel-hair-shrimp pasta that we consumed in one sitting. The shrimps were fresh and on sale at Sunflower last night, so score!

Ingredients: Minced garlic, salt, pepper, red pepper flakes (I wanted to use chillies but I forgot to pick them up yesterday during our grocery shopping trip), shrimp, angel hair pasta, one tomato, half an onion, mushrooms, romano cheese, chives, butter and olive oil.

Step One: Peel, clean and wash shrimps.

Step Two: Boil pasta in boiling water with salt and a few spoons of oil to prevent the pasta from sticking. Drain.

Step Three: Drizzle olive oil in a hot skillet generously. Melt two-three spoons of butter in it. Fry minced garlic, chopped onions (yaay for my Perfect Chopper!) and sprinkle red-pepper-flakes.

Step Four: Chop mushrooms and tomatoes.

Step Five: Drop the shrimp in the skillet with the aforementioned items. Cook thoroughly.

Step Six: Mix the pasta well with the shrimp and let it sit for a couple of minutes.

Step Seven: Chop chives and mix it in with the pasta.

Step Eight: Sprinkle salt, pepper and an additional dose of olive oil. Mix well. Serve with a sparse dose of romano cheese on top.

It was beyond delicious, thanks for asking! :)
