a different way to cook pasta
400 grms pasta
200 grms shrimps
200 grms fresh squid in strips
1 onion peeled and chopped
2 cloves of garlic peeled and chopped
50 grms thyme and basil(fresh ) chopped
1/2 tea sp oregano
1/4 pepper seeds
1/2 tea sp sugar
1 1/2 salt(add it in the end)
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
two tomatoes peeled and chopped
1 glass of white wine (prefer a demi sec or a sweet one)
Heat the oil(in a pan) with the chopped onion and the garlic,and cook it gently for 4 minutes.Remember to add the sugar on top of the onion.This will give a sweet and caramelize taste to the onion.
Add the squid strips and the herbs.Mix well and cook in a slow fire for 7 minutes.
Add the wine and let it be absorbed.
Then add the tomato and give it, a 4 minutes cook, setting the fire in medium temperature.
Now add the pasta and mix it gently with the sauce .Add warm water and let the food cooked in medium fire. Just be careful , the pasta must not stick on the bottom of the pan.
Keep adding water while by while, till the pasta will be ready. The time depends on your preference ,whether you like it \"al dente\" or a little more cooked.The last 6 minutes, add the shrimps and mix well with the pasta. The taste of the shrimps will\" embrace\" the pasta and the result will be great...try it
