Although the basic ingredients can all be found in this recipe, you can also add additional flavours if you like. In example, some onion, smoked paprika, etc. can be added if you like. The list goes on and It is entirely up to you.

I use spaghetti as the pasta, but linguini, macaroni or the pasta of your choice can be used. Just ensure it will stick to the sauce well. I always cook the noodles to al dente, but if you like it a bit softer, it can be cooked a bit longer.

In this recipe, we use Worcestershire sauce and soy sauce. You can use primarily soy and fish sauce too if you like. I don't add any salt as the soy sauce contains enough sodium.

The dish also makes a fantastic appetizer for parties or social evens.

Believe me, your family and friends will just love and will not believe that the dish was made that simply and quickly.

Give it a try and, as always, let us know what you think.
