Hello, October! This month, I have a special announcement: Barilla giveaway!
There are several pasta brands out there, some better than the others. Let’s talk about one of my favourites: Barilla! I have been using this brand of pasta and sauces for a very long time, they are always delicious and the pasta comes out perfectly al dente every time I get around to making it. So when Barilla launched their latest bottled sauce: Basilico, I jumped on the opportunity to not just create a delectable recipe out of it, but also organise a giveaway for you, the lovely cravers!
The pasta that you see in this video is pretty straightforward and easy to make. In fact, the sauce does most of the heavy lifting, I’m not embarrassed to admit. I’ve added chicken chorizo to this. There’s something magical about chicken chorizo. First off, I must say I am not one for processed food. I mean, you hardly know what goes into that chicken nugget that you crave so dearly, forgive me for saying. Having said that though, these chorizo sausages I get from NTUC are just perfect. They are made with 100% meat that has been cured with paprika, chillies and a plethora of other spices that all lend a kick to any recipe. Also, if you want this to be a tad creamy, add some cream (I vote for coconut cream, as I’m not quite done with my coconut obsession)! Enjoy the recipe, and head over to the Cravings!
