Spaghetti

This is the other pasta dish that I made for my Japanese friends. I made one cold dish and one hot one. I decided to make spaghetti using my favourite cooking method. Basically I sauté fresh veggies that are in season and melt in fresh parmesan. In this dish I added a dried hot chili and you can also drizzle a chili oil when you serve the dish. I have to say, I will miss using chopsticks for every meal. I am actually getting quite good at using them. I even eat like the Japanese now, hunched over bowls slurping noodles.

Cooking time 30 minutes
Serves 4

Ingredients:
1 package organic whole wheat spaghetti
2 tbsp olive oil
4 cloves garlic minced
1 dried hot red chilli
1 handful green beans cut into 1/3 inch pieces
1 handful snow peas
1/2 tsp (2 ml) salt
1/2 tsp (2ml) basil powder
1/2 tsp (2 ml) parsley powder
1/2 tsp (2 ml) grated pepper
1 large jar of organic tomato sauce
1 pint cherry tomatoes cut in half
1/2 package fresh basil thinly chopped
1/2 cup (125 ml) fresh parmesan shavings (optional)

Directions:
1. Cook pasta as directed on package.
2. In a large saucepan on medium heat, add the oil, garlic and chili and saute until golden.
3. Add the green beans and cook until outside gets slightly soft about 2 mins and then add the snow peas.
4. Add the salt and spices, stir, cook for a minute and then the tomato sauce.
5. Cook for 5 minutes or so and add the tomatoes. When the sauce is ready, add the cooked pasta, mix and then add the parmesan. Serve and garnish with fresh basil.
