Kung-Pao-Chicken-Spaghetti-Recipe

Pasta is one of the most favorite dishes around the world. Available in different shapes and sizes, pasta is made according to flavors that suits one’s taste palette and this is why there is a huge variety of Pasta dishes out there.


Pasta recipes generally are based on similar ingredients: tomato paste, beef mince, chicken, white sauce, vegetables and topped with grated cheddar. However there is still a lot of variety out there that needs to be explored. And I’m glad I explored and came across this recipe, which is also a dish of a famous restaurant.

Here I present you today the recipe of Kung Pao Chicken Spaghetti from the Asian/Chinese cuisine. What sets this pasta apart from the rest is the combination of sweet and spicy flavors with a kick of salt and a punch of sourness (kick & punch – interesting 😛 ), all these flavors combined and in a delectable balance. This dish is quick – prepared in just 30 minutes, healthy and definitely better than takeout! (oh yes it is)

Kung-Pao-Chicken-Spaghetti-Recips

And for my Vegan Friends, you can enjoy Kung Pao Spaghetti too, see the notes below

I love hearing from you so do write back!
