Easiest (and cheapest) Spaghetti Aglio Olio Recipe

Sunday, June 26, 2011

Hey did I mention that Conching is on vacation leave for 8 days? (Conching is our ever trusty and reliable kasambahay.)

Naka VL ang aking yaya until July 04. On Thursday, I have to present my Six Sigma Project to my sponsor. Plus it's month end (so that means reports, reports and more reports). Plus it's Orchid last week. (Orchid is a real person.) She's my team's knowledge coach.) She got promoted (sigh!). And it's the last 6 days of my one month unlimited Bikram yoga sessions (I only lost 4 lbs. - malamang Belo na talaga ang kasagutan sa aking pangarap!).

Need I say it?

I am going to have a hell hectic week! Just thinking about it gives me headache already.

I told my husband this morning. I am not cooking breakfast for you. Too many pots and pans involved. Instead I will cook an awesome brunch nalang para tipid. K? K? He said 'okay' back.

So may I present to you the easiest (and cheapest) Spaghetti Aglio Olio Recipe (eeeevvvarrr!).

The ingredients will depend on whatever stuff you have in your pantry or ref.

Basic ingredients should be pasta, olive oil, garlic and a can of tuna. Kahit yan lang mga buhay na ang recipe. In my case these are the ingredients I was able to rummage from our pantry:

spaghetti, tuna, mushroom, capers, olive oil, garlic, onion, tomato
*note: capers, tomato, mushroom and onion are all optional

1) Boil the pasta according to the packet instructions. Remove when al dente. Do not overcook as it will continue cooking in the pan later. Drain.

2)  Sautee garlic, onion and tomato in olive oil. It should look like this. (Tip: Do not burn the garlic or else the whole dish will taste bitter. Echosz. True yan!)

3) Add the capers, tuna and mushroom. Add salt and pepper. (Tip: Drain the oil of the canned tuna. Excess oil from the tuna will make the pasta soggy.)

4) Put back the pasta into the saucepan. I added a few sprinkles of parmesan cheese before removing it from the heat.

Finished product. Best served with garlic bread on the side or chicken piccata as another entree. Shushal!

Ayan! I might have to say goodbye to facebook, twitter and the blogging world until Conching returns. Sniff. Because you gotta to what you gotta do, right? Domesticated/working mom ang drama ko this week. Sniff. I'll live. 

I hope one of you tries the recipe out. I asked my husband: How much will you pay for this dish? (We play this game a lot whenever I cook. Haha!). He said P800 daw. Winner! (Either masarap yung pasta talaga or he wants to make me happy lang. Either which, happy parin ako haha.) :)

Happy Sunday. Now back to household chores.

The 30 day blog challenge will resume until such time na may time na ko. Hehe.
