{FOOD RECIPES} KIMCHI GOCHUJANG PASTA

All I can say about this pasta is that it's... DELICIOUS. It is one of my all time favorite pastas to make AND eat! I have to say, I got my inspiration from my sister-in-law who once made this (a bit differently) for my family and I was motivated to make this again with a different spin. It's not as difficult as it seems so if you're willing... I recommend anyone to try this recipe! This creamy, slightly spicy sauce goes perfectly with the pasta noodles and the green onions add a perfect touch! 

WHAT YOU'LL NEED:

  • 1-2 tbsp Red chilli paste (gochujang)
  • 2 cups of Kimchi (1 cup of kimchi sauce)
  • Any pasta noodles or spaghetti
  • 1 Onion
  • 1/2 a can- 1 can of spam, bacon, or any type of protein (my favorite is spam though)
  • 8 oz of heavy whipping cream ( I didn't use the entire carton!)
  • Green onions
  • Black pepper

(I didn't put any measurements because with cooking I don't really use exact measurements, I just eye it! So, as you cook this make sure to taste it along the way!)

HOW TO:

1.) Heat the pan.

2.) Chop the kimchi, onions, and spam and add it to the heated pan along with some of the kimchi sauce.

3.) Mix all the ingredients together and after about 5 minutes of mixing, add some gochujang sauce (red chilli paste). Mix well and continue to stir.

4.) After everything seems to be well mixed (you can keep adding some gochujang depending on how spicy you'd like it!) pour in your heavy whipping cream.

  • You can also start to boil your pasta. (Follow the instructions on the box which gives you the exact time for boiling the pasta!)

5.) While everything is coming to a slight boil, chop up some green onions that you'll use for the garnish. As the sauce comes to a finish, taste it and if you need more gochujang or heavy whipping cream... put in according to the level of spice you'd like it at.

6.) Add in the boiled pasta to the sauce and mix well! Put some green onions on top and VOILA!

Now you have yourself a bowl of delicious pasta! Enjoy!
