I should probably call this recipe “I wanted to make creamy alfredo Pasta but ended up with this delicious dish”. The concept is really: simple make delicious food out of simple ingredients. I always found myself numerous times in the past saying that I got nothing to eat even though I had stuffs in the fridge, the pantry and the freezer. The secret is to notice which spices go well together for your taste, because believe me it is not all the tastes that I like. I still have a difficult time with sweet main courses. I have been raised liking a particular taste and trying new items feels always different. When I find a recipe I try to make it a way I would love. I went a little out of context for this recipe but I hope it was helpful.
For this recipe I had on hand a pack of fusilli and I decided to use it with some left over seafood I had in the freezer. The only ingredient I will add next time is white wine, and I will be perfect!!!!
Ingredients for 2
8 oz of fusilli
1 lbs of mixed seafood (Prawn & Octopus)
