mee goreng Itali

Me and Min Fei decided to prepare lunch for the family on this day... and dad was complaining about the 2 packets of spagetti left unopened for quite a while already in the kitchen cabinet. So we thought it was a good time clearing the stock while it is still within the best before date (already checked, it expires in 2012 ^^)

Therefore, we prepared this nice Italian dish: Aglio e Olio 
It happens to be my dad and Min Fei's favourite type of pasta and they really don't like Spaghetti Bolognese with the tomato paste as they found it too wet and sweet. 

One packet of spaghetti added into the boiling water

marinated minced meat
Onions and garlic cut into thin slices
Button mushrooms and capsicum (i insisted must include the 3 type of capsicum which added vibrant colours to my spaghetti)
3 plates of ingredients :)
you cant exclude them in your cooking if you want your Aglio e Olio to taste fantastic
All were put into a big bowl to be carried down to the kitchen

al dente :)

Colourful combination in the wok

need a guy to do the stir frying cause the mixture of ingredients were really heavy >.<

Tadahhhh.. our "finished good" :P

Me and mee

Our "finished good" on the dining table ready to be wallop :P
