PASTA AND PIZZA

LINGUINE in PALABOK SAUCE

Italian meets Filipino. Thatโ€™s the highlight of this recipe. I cooked linguine with palabok sauce for Jenโ€˜s (niece) birthday dinner instead of traditional Pancit or Sotanghon in the Philippines. For the toppings I had; small octopus, smoked mackerel flakes, mussels with scallions and crunchy fried onions. As a change from the well-known and popular spaghetti, many chefs regularly use the long, but not round, but flat linguine. These very narrow ribbon noodles are also sold under the name Trenette.

Linguine in palabok sauce

The origin of the pasta name Linguine is exciting. The word linguine is something like “little tongue” in Italian. The narrow ribbon noodles are not only sold under different names but can also if necessary be replaced by other narrow ribbon noodles such as the Bavette, for example. The linguine, which are also popularly referred to as linguini, originally come from the Campania region in Italy. Added with Filipino “Palabok” sauce the thick yellow-orange sauce.

NO-BAKE CHEESECAKE with INCABERRIES TOPPING

You can also conjure up a super delicious cheesecake without an oven Iโ€˜ll show you how easy it is. Cake without baking, in my opinion, they are not so good for baking because they are very badly damaged in the oven due to high water content. Never mind what are the so-called โ€žno bakeโ€œ cakes for! No-bake cakes, as the English name suggests are not baked. They usually have a rather thin base and refreshing cream spread over it, which then sets by cooling it in refrigerator. Often, the no-bake cakes can be prepared really quickly and personally, I particularly like the fact that you save yourself baking and looking back in the oven. Today I conjured up a no-bake cheesecake with very fresh Incaberries topping. The biscuit base is wonderfully crispy, without sugar added in it.
