Spicy Asian Fusion Penne

READY IN: 33mins
Recipe by The Amaze-Ing Me

This is a very delicious recipe but it has A LOT of ingredients. Once I make it, I make it again and again until the more unusual ingredients run out...no one gets bored or complains because it's that good. I found it in the "Pasta" book from the Food and Wine Books. Hope you enjoy it as much as we have. It has a little KICK to it too! 19 ingredients in just a couple of steps...

Mediterranean meets Asia in this interesting culinary fusion. Happily, I tend to have all these ingredients on hand, so this was a great and easy recipe to throw together when I needed to make a quick but delicious supper! Only change, I used up the remainder of two different bags of pasta, some spirals and some flat shells, but I felt they went well with this dish and added interest. Also, once I had combined the sauce ingredients, I heated them very very gently for a couple of moments before tossing with the drained pasta. Lots of colour and spicy flavour made this a different and very enjoyable pasta dish, well worth trying! Thanks for posting!
