Here's a super quick pasta recipe!
Prepare spaghetti or linguine noodles.
While the noodles are cooking, heat half a cup of light olive oil with chopped garlic. Low heat so as not to burn the garlic. Put a bit of salt and pepper.
I like cooking. It helps me unwind and relax. It's raining so there's fresh talangka from Farmer's. They steam it for me and I enjoy it with patis, calamansi, and a bit of sili... Sometimes I want to be even more indulgent and we cook the talangka w/ ginger, garlic, siling pang sigang, and coconut milk! The talangka has a lot of aligue, and it's heavenly... Brings back memories of meals shared with Mom, Josh, and me. We all really enjoyed our cholesterol-rich Kapampangan delicacy.
Kris can whip up culinary delights in a jiffy, such as the king crabs in coconut milk which she cooked for her friends today. This is actually easy to make. Just wash your crabs, dividing each in half, and separating the claws from the body. Saute the pieces in garlic and ginger then add coconut milk which you can buy in cans from the supermarket. Allow to simmer for 5-10 minutes until liquid is reduced a bit. Add a little water if needed, green peppers, and season with salt or fish sauce. You can also add vegetables like sliced squash and/or eggplant. Serve hot with rice.
This recipe was taught to Kris by cooking mama Janice de Belen during the latter's guesting in KrisTV, but Kris innovated by adding roasted cherry tomatoes. This is really good and presents a different way to enjoy pasta! Perfectly suitable for seafood lovers.
We all know Kris is a very busy person. Still, one thing she finds time for is cooking & whipping out dishes to delight her friends and family. She recently surprised her staff with her spaghetti, one of her specialties. Asked by one of her followers about the recipe for her in-demand spaghetti, Kris shared the following cooking instructions:
"I put carrots, red & green pepper, celery & lots of fresh mushrooms. No added oil- browned the beef in the salad master, allowed it to render, then put onions & garlic. Sauce is RAGU, Hunt's 4 cheese & tomato paste. Simmered the sauce for almost 2 hrs."
Two hours? This is certainly one labor of love and something that Kris' loved ones will ask of her, time and again. It's really delicious!
