Stir-Fry Pasta

~ Posted on Wednesday, April 9, 2014 at 9:07 AM ~

For this post, I am sharing the different ways you can stir-fry pasta, at the same time ensuring it is healthy and kiddo-friendly meals! I normally cook pasta or fried rice for our kiddos' lunch and will try to mix and throw in whatever ingredients I have on hand. So feel free to go crazy with the ingredients hahaha... Without further ado, here goes my post on Stir-Fry Pasta:


* Garlic - 1-2 cloves chopped finely
* Pasta, spaghetti, whatever you have (I normally use fusili, the corkscrew shaped pasta)
* Meat: You can use chicken, fish, just make sure it is bite-sized for easier consumption
* Egg(s)
* Vegetable: I normally go for carrots (julienned), broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage
* Oil for frying - about 2 ~ 3 tbsp
* Vegetable broth powder - about
1 tsp
* Soy sauce - about 2-3 tbsp
* Salt & pepper to taste

* Prepare your pasta, make sure it's al dente.
* Heat oil in frying pan.
* Fry the garlic next until you smell nice garlic-ky smell from the frying pan. Be careful not to overfry them as it will give bitter taste then.
* Fry the meat (if any) until cooked. You can fry the egg(s) and/or veggies after that.
* Add in the cooked pasta and continue frying.
* Add in the vegetable broth and soy sauce and/or pepper and salt. Fry for 1-2 minutes some more.
* Dish is ready!

Outcome (some of the pics I managed to snap):

I like cooking these dishes, they are easy, fast, healthy and kids-friendly. I normally get everything done in half hour time. Hope you can try out some of these ideas and be more creative than me!
