Asian Pasta Stir-Fry

by Courtney on April 7, 2011

Somebody told me today that he’s feeling a little shafted…

Apparently, he doesn’t like how tulips and cookies have been replacing his blog time. Would ya look at that…he won’t even look at me!

Spoiled much?? Winking smile

Well, just to spite him, I made sure to snack on a leftover sugar cookie this afternoon.

Which apparently cause me to make wicked-awesome faces. Wow, I’m obnoxious. Rolling on the floor laughing

Dinner

Tonight’s dinner was a new recipe: Asian Pasta Stir-Fry!

I recently clipped this out of one of my past issues of Shape Magazine and decided tonight would be a good night to give it a go. It was wicked easy to make and tasted really, REALLY awesome.

There were so many different flavors happening, it was like a party in my mouth. Smile I made a few slight alterations to the original recipe and came up with this…

    ************

    First, start out by cooking your pasta and rinsing it under cold water.

    Next, mix together your flour, soy sauce, red wine vinegar, and broth in a small bowl.

    In another small bowl, lightly beat the egg and egg whites

    Next, get your biggest skillet, heat up your oil, and add in the spinach and garlic.

    After about 3 minutes, add in your eggs, stirring constantly for 1 minute.

    Next, stir in the tomatoes, red pepper, and soy sauce mixture, cook for 2 minutes, then increase heat to high and bring to a boil.

    Steamy! Winking smile

    Add the drained pasta and cook for 2-3 minutes or until heated through.

    Remove the pasta from heat and add in your pineapple chunks.

    VOILA! You’ve got yourself a delicious, flavorful stir-fry! Open-mouthed smile

    I had actually never made any sort of stir-fry before that called for eggs the way that this one did, but it was soooo good! Plus, having the spicy (red pepper flakes) and sweet (pineapple) combination definitely made the dish.

    We’ve got ourselves some leftovers, but I can definitely foresee this recipe staying in our rotation.

    Wait, do we even have a rotation…?

    **********

    Tonight, Jay and I are off to visit with some friends and family at bowling again. Surprisingly, bowling season is almost over which meeeeeeans…

    Softball Season!! I can’t wait! Open-mouthed smile

    Catch ya’ll laterrrrr!

    I love pasta dishes and this one is not exception. I’ve never bought those spiral noodles before, I like em :) I’ve been meaning to make something Asian with pasta, I’ve become quite the soy sauce addict. I’d probably mix it with some pb and sriracha :D

    This looks delicious! I cannot believe how much time it takes to post recipes! I just did my first one tonight and must say it took me a long time. Hopefully I’ll get quicker at this :-)
