Basil Creme Penne

As promised I will share the recipe today. Nakahabol pa ako! :-)


Serves 3  
Prep Time 20 minutes  
Cooking Time 20 minutes
  • 400g penne or ziti (pasta)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil (or any vegetable oil)
  • 50g ham, sliced
  • 1 pack Knorr Complete Recipe Mix - Ginataang Gulay
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup all-purpose cream
  • 8 fresh basil leaves
  • ground black pepper
 Cooking Procedure:
  1. Cook pasta according to package directions. (Penne and ziti usually takes 10-12 minutes to cook. No better way to check if the pasta is cooked than to bite it. If the pasta is firm but doesn't stick to your teeth, it's cooked. If it sticks to your teeth, cook for another minute and check again. DO NOT OVERCOOK. 'Wag nyo na gawin yung ibato-sa-dingding-pag-dumikit-luto-na method. Please. Haha!)
  2. In a different pan, saute tomatoes and ham in oil.
  3. Dissolve the Ginataang Gulay mix in water. Add to the pan, then simmer until thick.
  4. Reduce heat then add cream. Stir a few times.
  5. Add cooked pasta and basil leaves. 
  6. Add ground black pepper to taste.
  7. Cook for another 3 minutes. Mix continuosly.
Note that the Ginataang Gulay mix gives it a taste of coconut milk (gata). If you're not fond of gata, use cow's milk instead. :-)

Happy eating! Hugs!

I got this recipe from the Knorr Complete Recipe mix magazine ad. O ha, useful din ang mga free recipes sa mga ad na ganyan. :-)
I packed this pasta with the Greek Salad (abangan sa Friday!) for Edward's lunch. He texted, "And sarap ng lunch ko! Nawiwili ako, baby!" Awwwww. Dying from kilig now. *blush* :-)
