Why I Love This Recipe

This recipe was inspired by the "Recco" pasta I had at Primi Urban Cafe in Saint Petersburg, FL. From the menu, it lists curry, basil, and garlic as some key ingredients. Since I love curry and basil flavors, I decided to experiment in making a similar dish.

Ingredients You'll Need

Fresh Basil (1.5 Tablespoons minced)
Fresh Lemongrass (1 Tablespoon minced)
Fresh Garlic (1 Tablespoon minced)
Curry powder (3 Tablespoons)
Cumin powder (1.5 Tablespoons)
Fresh Goat Cheese (1-2 Tablespoon).
1 jar (25oz) of spaghetti/pasta sauce.
Olive oil (2 Tablespoons)


While waiting for the water for pasta to boil, mince the basil, lemongrass, and garlic.

Pour the spaghetti/pasta sauce in a saucepan, on medium heat. Add the minced basil, lemongrass, garlic, curry, and cumin. Also add olive oil. Stir and cover for a few minutes.

After a few minutes, add 1-2 Tablespoon of fresh goat cheese to the pasta sauce and mix well.

Add 1-2 Tablespoon of butter.(optional)

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook time: 15 minutes

Cost: $5-7 on average

Serves 2-3.
