Pasta with Golden Breadcrumbs, Herbs and Shallots

May 4, 2013

follow Pasta is comfort food. I’m sure all of you would probably agree with me. Of late, I’ve been obsessed with pasta – and it’s a staple at least once a week at home. Another obsession is Farfalle, which I’ve suddenly started preferring over the regular Penne. That’s why its funny that I’ve only posted one pasta recipe on this blog.

http://ohanama.com/content/ohana-gallery Some time last month, one of my favourite fellow food bloggers, Bombay Chowparty — you know her; she was the inspiration behind the Mango Pavlova — posted her latest pasta picture on Facebook. I was instantly intrigued and pretty much hounded her for the recipe. She had made pasta with breadcrumbs, herbs and shallots. So, under some pressure to post it, she did and I made the pasta that very night. It was divine – so different, simple and fragrant. I made it again today – tweaked it just a bit – and decided to post it here.

  1. Put a pot of salted water to boil and once it does, cook the pasta in it till al dente.
  2. In the meanwhile, in a blender, blend up the bread and garlic till it resembles proper breadcrumbs. Chop up the spring onions, chillies and herbs.
  3. Put the chillies and mixed breadcrumbs in a hot pan with 3 tbsp of oil and fry till the mixture is golden and crispy.
  4. Now, add the chopped up herbs and springs onions and saute till fragrant.
  5. Add the salt, sugar and lime zest.
  6. That's how the mixture looks before the pasta goes in.
  7. Then put in the cooked and drained pasta and toss well.
  8. Add the remaining tablespoon of oil and toss well.
  9. You could top this with some grated parmesan cheese. I'm sure it would round up the pasta beautifully.
