Blue cheese + brandy = heavenly pasta


Few days ago, I decided to cook some lavish pasta instead of the usual carbonara sauce or alio oglio that I usually do. I bought some sun dried tomatoes and want to give my pasta that ‘expensive’ taste.

So, I got myself some salmon, prawns, yellow capsicum, one fresh tomatoes, chopped onions and garlic plus some herbs. I heat the oil with some butter and olive oil and stir fry the onion and garlic.


Then, I add in the prawns, herbs, fresh tomatoes and dried tomatoes to simmer for a while with some water. Meantime, boil the pasta according to instructions. When the pasta is ready, drain and pour in the gravy. Give a few dashes of brandy, crumble some blue cheese and add in the salmon. Salmon cooks very fast so I don’t boil them with the prawns.  Flavour with salt and black pepper.

I serve the pasta with some freshly grated parmesan cheese and it taste just exquisite.  Not the ordinary restaurant’s stuffs but five star restaurants’ expensive taste.

    ahhhh not bad a recipe…you got 🙂 ……give you a tip about the salmon, instead of using fresh salmon best you use smoked salmon strips….also your recipe would taste even better if you add some capers ….yum yum yum since its in an olive oil based suace 😉
