Hi guys!! Here’s a brand new recipe for you guys! We came up with the idea for this one after we had made a whole bunch of super DELICIOUS sundried tomatoes while making Sundried Tomatoes and Garlic Butter Bruschettas. SO good!! ?
So yeah, we had a whole bunch of these in a jar and one fine lazy Monday evening, we came up with an idea for this pasta recipe. And once we made it, we instantly fell in love with it! It’s tangy with a spice kick and starts just right!!
So it’s officially been two months since we both moved to Malaysia ??!! YAY! We’re definitely loving this place and absolutely adore the positive vibes from everyone in this country.
There is one thing about Malaysians that I absolutely love. They have the habit of saying ‘CAN’ to just about everything. If you ever ask them if something can be done or if it possible to do it, they always respond positively and say ‘can/can can’ – meaning that yes you can/yes we can. This short form is used extremely frequently by the locals here and it just goes to show their outlook towards life. Makes me personally feel like, really, anything is possible if you just want to set out to do it.
So coming back to the recipe for today, this pasta recipe is my go-to apart from the 5 ingredient pasta recipe we posted last year! Both these recipes are super delicious and simple – just the way we like it!
