Tuyo Pasta with Cilantro

Cooking for one again. On my way home, I was craving for some Gourmet Tuyo (Dried boneless herring fillet) that was marinated in vinegar, oil and garlic. Hubby bought some from our foray at the grocery store last weekend. The best that I've tasted so far is this brand, Gourmet Tuyo.

Instead of having the traditional fare of fried rice, tuyo, eggs and tomatoes (which is absolutelt great by the way), I made a simple pasta dish instead. I used a bunch of cilantro from the fridge to add some freshness to an otherwise salty dish.

Tuyo Pasta with Cilantro
For one

You will need:
Dried spaghetti noodles
Extra virgin Olive Oil
1 clove garlic, minced
Gourmet Tuyo about 5-7 fillets
Cilantro leaves
Tomatoes, seeded and chopped

1. Cook the pasta according to package directions.
2. In a separte pan, saute garlic until fragrant but not brown.
3. Add the spaghetti, a little bit of the pasta water, salt, tuyo, cilantro and tomatoes.
4. Toss and eat immediately.

This pasta dish is actually very good. It's a light dish that can be whipped up in no time at all.

A simple aioli recipe is so versatile, you can just add whatever ingredients you can find in your fridge and make a delicious and healthy meal (ok, semi-healthy meal).

Hello, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a lot of spam remarks? If so how do you stop it, any plugin or anything you can advise? I get so much lately it’s driving me insane so any assistance is very much appreciated.
