Farfalle & Pan Fried Satay Chicken

They're all kinds of pasta available these days....round, flat, long, short, thin...even with shapes. You just name it! Farfalle is one of the really cute and beautifully shaped butterfly like pasta. Some even called it as "bow-tie pasta". If you're interested in making your own farfalle, please refer here or here for more awesome homemade pasta. I bet my homemade spaghetti sauce just terrific for this.

Ingredients for Farfalle :
500gm farfalle
5-6L water for boiling
1 tspn salt
2 slices lemon

Method :
(1) bring water to boil, then add in all the ingredients and let to boil over high heat untill tender without covering the top.
(2) drain the pasta without running through water once it's done.
(3) place them to a big bowl and stir in 2 tbsp spoon of corn oil/olive oil till well mixed. Set aside.)
* oil is to prevent them from sticking together.

Reheat the sauce, by using the homemade spaghetti sauce and then stir in farfalle pasta. Mix to combine and serve with the following pan fried satay chicken.

Ingredients for Pan Fried Satay Chicken :
500gm chicken fillet, sliced
4 shallots, minced
4 gloves garlic, minced
1 stalk lemongrass, sliced & minced
salt & pepper to taste
1 tbsp sesame oil
2 tbsp brown sugar
2 tspn coriander powder
2 tspn curry powder
1 tspn cumin powder
1/2 tspn fennel powder
(marinade the meat with all the ingredients and set aside for an hour, then pan fry till golden brown and serve)

See, we can always enjoy satay chicken without grilling which is really time consuming. Just pan fried them. Don't worry, they taste as good.

A plate of perfect pasta shouldn't just dish out nude. A dash of ground parmesan cheese should work fabulously good. Enjoy!

Bow-tie pasta is one of my favorite pastas. We even have the mini ones here which are perfect for salads. Your pan fried satay looks great with the pasta!
