Spicy Angel Hair Pasta with Minced Meat Sauce

Of all the pastas, my favourite is Angel Hair which is the thinnest, easy to cook and goes well with a variety of sauces. The meat sauce and the Szechuan Chilli Oil blends very well with this pasta.   Add more chilli oil if you want it to be spicy.

I served this pasta dish with a Mixed Vegetable Salad [see next post]. Together it is a complete meal for lunch or dinner.
The original recipe uses wantan noodles. 
Recipe Source - Yum Yum Magazine No. 67

  1. Minced Meat Sauce - Heat up oil, saute garlic and shallots until aromatic, add in the minced meat and continue stirring to break up the meat.
  2. Add in the taucheong and stir fry until fragrant.  Add in the seasoning, stir to mix well, then add in the water.

Thanks Victoria, if Szechuan Chilli Oil is no problem with you. This minced meat sauce goes well be any type of blanched noodles. Surprisingly, the chilli oil blends well with the Pasta, too.

Hi Lay Pheng, you like angel hair pasta too? I like the fine texture cos' it can absorb the flavours of any sauce that goes with it.

Hi Zoe, luckily this pasta and meat sauce blends well cos' it is a One Dish Meal which I cooked on the days when I'm busy baking cookies,hehehe!.. If it's not good, my family will have to eat out cos' I too tired to cook a proper meal after doing so much baking.
