Linguine Aglio Olio


Pasta Aglio Olio is a hot topic in food blogs. I've seeing lots of "flogger" cook up their innovative pasta Aglio Olio. I couldn't wait a second longer to try making one of my own. Personally, I prefer my version with lots of seafood, but unfortunately I had none, except prawns. So, I added lots of vegetables. It's another option boost my meal with more greens.:)

When I told hubby I wanted to cook pasta for our dinner, he expected the pasta with gravy. Too bad, he's not fancy over pasta in this Aglio Olio style. He has not get used to it. But for me, as long as it's spicy, I can gobble down a big plate of it. :P

It's time for me to contribute to Presto Pasta Night founded by Ruth. The host of the PPN# 167 is Kirsten.


Linguine Aglio Olio
Serves 3

Ingredients:

Linguine, quantity enough for 3
1 bulb of garlic, peeled and sliced thinly
10 dried chilies, dehydrated and cut into 2-3cm length
Half of yellow capsicum, seeded and sliced
18 medium-sized prawns, shelled and vein removed
5 Brussel sprouts, washed and diced horizontally

Salt to taste

I like your take on more veggies in this pasta :)

Ruth Daniels said...

Sounds very tasty to me. Thanks for sharing with Presto Pasta Nights.

Sometimes I just lightly "cook" the garlic in the oil - just until you get that wonderful aroma and then toss the drained pasta with the "sauce".

I just did an aglio olio few days back, due to be published in Oct :)

But I didn't know that it is currently a hot topic in the food blogging world, just that I felt like cooking it and that was it.
