I always believe in good combination of meat, starch and vegetables in a meal. I always do :)
I don't think I need to give this plate of spaghetti any fanciful introduction. The post title says it all.
- Thyme infused or Garlic infused Olive Oil, Ordinary Olive Oil works fine too
- a splash of White Wine (if you have it at home)
- Parmesan Cheese for topping (Optional)
- Sea Salt and Pepper to taste
- Bring a large saucepan of water to a boil and add the spaghetti. Stir well and boil rapidly until the pasta is al dente.
- Strain spaghetti, set aside. Keep the starchy water that you used to cook spaghetti. It's useful.
- Meanwhile, combine the oil and garlic in a small saucepan. Fry the shallots till fragrant. And then, add in smoked duck pieces. Continue to fry until you could smell the smoked duck's fragrance.
- Add in spaghetti, salt and pepper. Toss. Add abit of the starchy water along the way, to give the noodles more moisture.
- Give a splash of white wine, give it a quick toss before you turn off the heat. If you have Parmesan Cheese at home, grate some on top before serve.
It's easy, right?
Oh yes! Side track abit. Salad! The veggies must be fresh from the market. I love and I'd always try my best to make my salad to looks more vibrant. It's like, when I look at it, I will smile. You know?
I will always wanna put our bellies in a good mood over the weekend. Although it might looks simple.
Max prefers such simple spaghetti to the more traditional tomato-based or creamy based variety. The smoky flavor of smoked duck gives the spaghetti a twist!
For a lazy sunday, I wanna make it simple. Just give my spaghetti a quick toss and serve with a bowl of effortless salad.
