Anguilla, Rasta Pasta!

For those who don’t have any idea about the title, Anguilla, is a country that’s located in the Caribbean Sea. Here’s a map of it; it’s pretty weird cause we didn’t have any idea about the country at all at the first place. We did a little search on it, and voila! We found a recipe of one of the food they have, called, Rasta Pasta. A delighting yet simple to cook cuisine, with low budget.

So here we go!

As you can see only little ingredients are needed. Broccoli, cooked shrimp, mushroom, garlic and green onion; those are the important one. You could add grated lemon rind and romano cheese for the sprinkler.

We used mozzarella cheese instead of romano one since we didn’t find one, sigh. Oh, and we also leave the grated lemon rind, there’s always an option you know.
So for the start, you just need to heat the oil, we use olive oil. Cook the linguine as you wait. When the oil’s ready, put a sprinkle of garlic, shrimp and saute for about two minutes, after that you can add the rest, mushrooms, broccoli and the green onion. Saute a little and cover.
You still have linguine that boil, you won’t forget that. For about  three minutes, it’s time to salt and pepper what’s cooking, and you’re done. Oh, and you might wanna put the grated lemon rind if you use one. Put the pasta into the pan, mix it well, serve it and you’re done! Put the cheese on top before serving.
As we made this, the portion was up to three person.
