This is going to look a little weird. To some, it might be weird, because not many would cook spaghetti this way. The mad fairy is on her evil witch mode again and was desperate to cook something to poison herself and her poor family with.
The fairy was out of groceries yesterday, and discovered that there’s nothing left in her fridge besides some crab-sticks, chopped garlic and some cabbage. And this is what she decides to cook with those stuff she managed to dig out from her fridge and from her kitchen cabinet.
The weird looking pasta is a combination of chopped garlic that has been sautÃ©ed with soya sauce, oyster sauce, black peppers, salt as well as some crab-sticks and cabbage. Looks weird eh?
I think it looks really weird and strange, but taste-wise it’s quite nice and edible, and make a wonderful quickie meals for those who have no time to cook elaborate meals.
It is nothing gourmet, just a frugal meal to keep your tummy warm while you’re working or studying. I would recommend this to busy mums a s well as students. Cheap and it also won’t take much of your time to prepare.
Here’s the recipe:
1/2 packet of spaghetti or yellow noodles (I used spaghetti)
Some crab sticks
6 tablespoon of soya sauce
3-4 tablespoon of oyster sauce
1 table spoon of chopped garlic
1/2 cup of water
Some cooking oil
Salt and coarse black pepper to taste
First of all, cook the pasta/noodle til al dante and drain. Put it aside. Pour in some cooking oil in the pan and sautee the chopped garlic, soya sauce, oyster sauce and black pepper til fragrant.
Add the cabbage leaves that has been torn to bite sized pieces as well as the crab-sticks into the sauce and add some water and wait til it simmer and thickens before adding the pasta/noodles into it. Stir and make sure the sauce coat the pasta/noodles properly. Add some salt to taste if you prefer.
Take out and serve while it’s piping hot.
Yield: 2 servings
Preparation time: 10-15 minutes.
Cleffairy: My mum used to cook something like this when I burn the midnight oil for my exam, but she used chicken instead of crab-sticks. You could substitute the crab-sticks with any meat of your choice. 😀
