Happy Monday great foodie friends!
It has been far too long since my last blog post!
This dish is a classic and tasty flavor pow for all who like a little kick of spice.
This dish is one that I have loved for years from a favorite restaurant of mine. Quattro’s or Gusto Di Quattro now.
The dish is known as Spaghetti for Italians only. I used fresh linguine but either Will work.
What you need:
1/2 cup of good olive oil
1 lb Ground Chicken (I like dark meat- so much more flavor!)
2 minced garlic cloves
2 tsp of chili peppers
Salt to taste
4 oz Black beans or black turtle beans
1 tsp of Italian parsley funky chopped
1 cup of tomato sauce – ours was chicken based.
Parmigiano cheese to serve with
What you will do:
Heat up the oil on medium high heat & then add the chicken and start to brown.
At the same time heat up your pasta water and make sure to salt the water! The fresh pasta cools quickly, approx 6-8 mins.
Add in the salt, garlic, parsley and chili flakes and stir to incorporate
Then add in the tomato sauce & stir. Cook for another 5 mins on medium low to blend all the flavors.
Now top with your fresh grated parmigiano cheese (to love cheese is to love life for me!)
This pasta is also great to make your own- you can adjust your spice level or garlic to your liking.
You gotta try this!
