It’s been a busy busy week. Here’s one of the hasty but hefty meals I made during the course of the past seven days.
Stir-fried and real quick to make.
Almost Asian, use a fork to rake.
- 1 portion quick cook spaghetti
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 80g lean pork, or pork shoulder, thinly sliced
- 2 inches carrot, cut into small 1-inch slices
- 1 brown mushroom, sliced
- 1 handful young spinach leaves
- 2 sprigs fresh rosemary
- 1 tbsp vegetable oil
- sea salt and black pepper, freshly ground
- As always, set your pasta away in a pot of boiling water. Carrots go in there as well.
- In a hot wok, heat up the oil. Dip the sprigs of rosemary into the pasta pot for 5 seconds, before tossing into the wok. TIP! This exposure to hot water for such a short time make a world of a difference; the herb begins to release its fragrant oils.
- Just before the rosemary starts getting too happy in there, toss in the garlic and fry till fragrant.
- Then add in the pork. Stir about and add water from the pasta pot in small quantities, to aid to cooking of the meat.
- The pasta should be done soon. So toss in the mushrooms to the wok now.
- Drain the pasta when al dente and add to the wok. Turn off the heat.
- Spinach goes in as well. Mix well.
- Season accordingly with sea salt and black pepper.
- Once spinach has wilted, serve.
