Nothing beats homecooked food, especially when you are broke and have leftovers you need to go through!
Decided to go for a simple bowtie pasta with pancetta and chives. Nothing fancy about this dish but damn, was it delicious.
Being a huge fan of spicy dishes, I wanted to dive into a different type of flavour for the pasta instead of the usual cream-based or tomato sauce. Enter Okazu, a chilli miso sauce we picked up at the One of a Kind Show and Sale. Experimented with mixing different amount of Okazu and hot sauce and finally found a happy medium.
1. Set a pot of water on the stove to boil
2. Dice the pancetta into tiny cubes
3. Dice the chives
1. Once the water’s boiled, put in the bowtie pastas for about 7-8 minutes. You don’t want it to be completely soft so make sure to keep an eye on it.
2. Once the bow-tie pastas are done, drain it and leave it aside.
3. Grab a medium sized frying pan and begin frying the diced pancetta, toss in 2 teaspoons of Okazu sauce and some hot sauce of your choice. We made our own following this recipe
4. Pour in the bowtie pasta and mix it in well, adding salt, pepper and garlic flakes to taste
5. Finish off with putting in the diced chives.
