Spicy Fried Pasta

This dish uses store bought pasta sauce and dried chilli paste. I had half a bottle of Leggo's pasta sauce left in the fridge and I did not want to have another regular pasta dish. This one is a fairly simple dish to make and spicy - something that I have been craving for :-D . For this, you can use any pasta sauce that you like but I like something with chunks of tomatoes, onions and veges and my choice is Leggo's Primavera.


1 medium onion, chopped
2-3 clove garlic, chopped
250-300g pasta
250-300g pasta sauce (you can put more if you want to have more tomato-ish flavour)
2-3 tbsp chilli paste (more if you want fiery spicy)
2 tsp ikan bilis granules or anchovies
100-200g prawns, shelled and deveined
fish cake, thinly sliced
freshly ground black pepper
2-3 tbsp olive oil

1. Boil pasta till al-dente, drained and set aside
2. Heat oil and fry chilli paste till oil separates, then add chopped onions and garlic
3. Once fragrant, pour pasta sauce, stir till well combined
4. Add ikan bilis granules or anchovies and pepper
5. Add prawns and fish cake slices, stir till all ingredients are coated with the sauce
6. Once the sauce starts to bubble, add the pasta and stir till well combined for about 10mins or till the pasta absorbs the sauce
7. Serve hot with chopped scallions/parsley and fried shallots as garnish
