Creamy Thai-Style Pasta



You have never heard of Thai-style pasta before? Well, me too :)! The only thing Thai about this pasta is the Thai chili paste that I use. The rest of the ingredients is quite typical Italian.

Ingredients (serves 2)

  • 200 g pasta, boiled until al dente
  • 3 tbs olive oil
  • 1 tbs minced garlic
  • 100 g prawns
  • 150 ml cream
  • 2 tbs Thai chili paste with soy bean oil*
  • 2 hard-boiled eggs, chopped
  • 1 tbs Maggi vegetable granules
  • 1 tbs dried oregano
  • 150 g grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • Black pepper to taste

*This is the Thai chili paste I use. If you cannot find this paste, be creative and find a different type of Asian chili paste and create your own East-West pasta combo.

Instructions
  • Heat olive oil on medium heat.
  • Add minced garlic and prawns. Sauté until fragrant.
  • Add Thai chili paste, cream, Maggi granules, sugar and chopped hard-boiled eggs. Stir and then let it simmer for 1 minute.
  • Toss in the pasta, Parmesan cheese, black pepper and dried oregano. Sauté for about 1 minute.
  • Serve immediately and garnish with some cherry tomatoes and salad greens.

  2. Yum, I really like this fusion of eastern flavors with a western dish! I sometimes make my own pasta noodles at home so I may try to incorporate your Thai ingredients to make the noodles next time! Thanks for the inspiration!
