Tagliatelle with Chicken Mince & Paprika

(click on the pic for a larger image)

Pasta is always loved in any shape or taste, and the good thing is, it’s cooked very fast. I usually make it with lamb mince, but here I tired the chicken mince, it’s quicker to prepare as chicken cooks on a fast track : )

You can use any additional spices you like, but oregano is a must to give it that pasta taste : )

A quick dish to make if short of time, it’s yummy and equally very filling!!!

Here we go:

250gram chicken mince
1 onion cubed
2 bulbs garlic (grated)
½ tsp red chili flakes
¼ tsp oregano
¼ tsp thyme
½ tsp paprika powder
½ tsp salt (or to taste)
2tsp tomato paste
½ tsp cumin powder
1 large paprika (bell pepper cubed)
3-5 tbs oil
50gram grated Gouda cheese
(or any available)


**Tagliatelle (Ribbon Noodles)
**Prepare according to given instructions, drain and set aside




 
-heat oil in a wok and fry the cube onion light pinkish
-add in the mince and sauté
-Sprinkle the grated garlic and sauté
- mix all the spices in the tomato paste and add in the mince
-keep stirring will all mixes up well
-the chicken mince actually gets cooked in the steam so we need no extra water in it
-add in the cubes of paprika and just cover the lid and leave it for around 5 minutes, till these get a bit cooked
-I never cook it too much and leave the paprika crunchy, as that tastes very good.
-ready to serve, place the ribbon noodles in a deep plate, and spread the spicy mince on the top, sprinkle  with cheese and there you go…

Your yummy meal is ready : )
