Spaghetti Stir-Fried With Laksa Leaves

The fresh laksa leaves that was left over from the assam laksa was utilized in this spaghetti stir-fry. I thought the spaghetti will be infused with lemony flavor from the laksa leaves, Who knows, it's pretty tasteless per hubby's feedback. So, don't be fooled by it's appealing look. Anyway, hubby was very supportive as he finished up all the portion that I specially prepared for his lunch.

I have tried a spaghetti dish stir-fried with laksa paste and leaves before. In short, it is like dry laksa!

I'm sorry the laksa leaves didn't give much flavor! It certainly does look delicious!
