It is actually an easy yet delicious dish for me to eat whenever I feel lazy: please forget the fact that I am naturally lazy to cook but my passion for food inspire me, at least, to read a food blogs or watch the cooking shows. As per my other half, I am always quiet, and don’t even make a move when I watch those shows or read the blogs. How can I resist the delicious food, huh?
I cook penne according to the package direction and drain them. One thing I learn from Rachel Ray show is that “never ever rinse the cooked pasta under the cold water”, so I didn’t. Then I put a little bit of olive oil or butter (depending on what I have in my pantry) to the cooked penne to remain slippery.
Heat the oil and sauté the shrimps and ground chicken and set aside. Then add the chopped shallots, grated garlic, and grinded chili until it is lightly brown. Add the long peas and sauté them for about 2-3 minutes according to your preference. For the taste, I only use oyster sauce, light soy sauce, fish sauce. Finally toss the holy basil, and stir the cooked shrimps and chicken and penne in the pan. That’s it, my version of Thai fusion penne!
